Defensive lineman Israel Idonije has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for his facemask penalty in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Idonije briefly grabbed McNabb’s facemask and let go, but the officials caught the play in the first quarter. On the third-and-seven play, McNabb ran for a six-yard gain. The penalty gave the Eagles a first down on their touchdown drive that gave them a 10-0 lead.
