The Cincinnati Bengals are rolling after their dominant win over the Indianapolis Colts, but the league’s accountability page isn’t forgetting about a hit in the team’s Monday Night Football win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris will be fined barely five figures for his hit on wide receiver Tyler Boyd in the first half of Cincinnati’s 31-28 win. The amount, according to the NFL, is $10,927.

The play in question came in the first quarter when Robertson-Harris removed the helmet of Boyd.

Boyd wasn’t hurt on the play and went on to have the third-most receiving yards on the team. He ended the game with five receptions for 37 yards, an average of 7.4 yards per catch, and, of course, that painful trick-play attempt.

The Bengals took the Jags to overtime and won 34-31, pushing their record to 6-6 on the season, then beat the Colts on Sunday to get to 7-6.
