NFL fines Steelers coach Mike Tomlin $100,000
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has been fined $100,000 for interfering with a play against the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving.
The NFL also said Wednesday that it would consider docking Pittsburgh a draft pick "because the conduct affected a play on the field."
In the third quarter of the Ravens' 22-20 win last Thursday, Tomlin was standing on the restricted white border between the sideline and field during Jacoby Jones' kickoff return. Jones had to swerve to avoid colliding with the coach and was tackled after a 73-yard return that might have gone for a touchdown if not for the obstruction. Tomlin briefly stepped onto the field before he jumped back.
He was not penalized during the game for the rule violation.
Tomlin said Tuesday he was "mesmerized" by watching the return on the video board and would accept any punishment.
Flyers continue road swing in Detroit
DETROIT (AP) - The Flyers look to halt the Red Wings' winning streak at five games during a visit to Detroit tonight.
Philadelphia went 8-2-1 in its previous 11 before falling 2-0 to Minnesota on Monday in its second stop on a six-game road trip. It scored fewer than three non-shootout goals for the fifth straight time and its 57 goals are among the fewest in the league.
Vincent Lecavalier, who has a team-best nine goals, was scratched in the last contest because of back spasms. His status for this game is uncertain.
Ray Emery made 19 saves Monday, but Steve Mason - 6-1-1 with a 1.72 GAA in his last eight - could start this contest.
BLUE JAYS-PHILLIES TRADE
Phils trade C Kratz to Blue Jays for RHP Lincoln
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies traded catcher Erik Kratz and left-hander Rob Rasmussen to the Toronto Blue Jays for righty Brad Lincoln on Tuesday night.
Lincoln will compete for a spot in Philadelphia's bullpen. He was 1-2 with a 3.98 ERA in 22 games for Toronto in 2013. He had 25 strikeouts in 31 2-3 innings and pitched more than one inning in 13 of his 22 relief appearances. The 28-year-old Lincoln is 9-11 with one save and a 4.66 ERA in 97 career games with Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto.
Kratz hit .213 with nine home runs and 26 RBIs in 68 games with Philadelphia last season. He began the year as the starting catcher because Carlos Ruiz was serving a 25-game suspension for using a banned amphetamine. Kratz hit .230 with 18 homers and 52 RBIs in 120 games over three seasons with the Phillies.
The 33-year-old Kratz spent 10 years in the minors before making his major league debut with the Pirates in 2010. He'll back up newly signed Dioner Navarro in Toronto.
The Phillies signed Ruiz to a three-year deal last month and will likely add a veteran backup soon.
Rasmussen, acquired in the trade that sent Michael Young to the Los Angeles Dodgers, was 3-11 with a 4.11 ERA in the minors.
PENN STATE-STAFF CHANGES
Penn State loses 2 off football coaching staff
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State quarterbacks coach Charlie Fisher and linebackers coach Ron Vanderlinden have resigned.
Coach Bill O'Brien announced the moves on Tuesday. Vanderlinden was a holdover from former coach Joe Paterno's staff and was the Nittany Lions' linebackers coach since 2001. Fisher was the quarterbacks coach the past two seasons.
O'Brien says he will begin an immediate search to fill the two positions.
Penn State defeated No. 14 Wisconsin last Saturday to finish the season with a 7-5 mark.
