Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been fined $7,500 for planting a flag in the end zone after scoring a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers, Pro Football Talk quotes an NFL spokesman confirming.
Any celebration that uses a prop carries an automatic fine from the league, so Johnson was docked. The celebration consisted of Johnson taking the flag from one of the male cheerleaders who runs on the field after a touchdown, then sticking it in the turf.
Johnson suffered a foot injury later in the game and is out indefinitely.
