The Associated Press reported Wednesday that Packers CB Charles Woodson has been fined $10,000 for throwing a punch at Saints TE David Thomas in Green Bay's Week One victory over New Orleans. The fine has not been announced by the league or the team.

The incident occurred in the third quarter of the Packers' 42-34 victory on Sept. 8. Woodson was blocked by Thomas on a running play and took exception to a push from Thomas after the tackle had been made by throwing an uppercut. Woodson was flagged for a personal foul but was not ejected.

"Yeah, I threw a punch," Woodson admitted after the game. "Just got frustrated, the guy was holding me a little longer than I wanted. Nothing was said about it, referee-wise, quick enough, and I reacted. It is what it is, I guess."
