Bills WR Stevie Johnson has been fined $10,000 for his touchdown celebration Sunday where he mimicked shooting himself in the thigh, the Associated Press reports.

The celebration was an apparent attempt to mock Jets WR Plaxico Burress, who spent nearly two years in jail after accidently shooting himself in a New York nightclub in November 2008.

This is the third fine of Johnson's NFL career after receiving two for a combined $15,000 last season.

In his fourth season from Kentucky, Johnson has 54 receptions for 622 yards and five touchdowns.
