NEW YORK — Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been fined $11,050 by the NFL for an inappropriate gesture while scoring a touchdown against Arizona last Sunday night.

Oakland's Justin Tuck and San Francisco's Joe Staley were each fined $22,050 by the NFL for using "abusive" language toward officials in games last weekend.
