Washington Redskins safety Deshazor Everett was fined $48,000 for two penalties against the Eagles on Sunday, the Washington Post reported Thursday. One of those penalties was the hit that left Darren Sproles with a concussion as Sproles was trying to field a punt. Everett was also penalized for an illegal block that knocked tight end Brent Celek out of the game.
Everett told the Post he would appeal the two $24,000 fines.
"Some people want to say I'm a dirty player, but I know I'm not a dirty player," Everett told the newspaper. "Anybody that knows me knows the type of person that I am. I just play the game physically. I'm not the biggest guy out there, so it's not like I'm out there just taking shots on everybody. I'm just out there playing football the way I grew up playing football."
Sproles has not been cleared to return from the concussion. Celek is back at practice after suffering a stinger.
Offensive lineman Allen Barbre missed practice with a hamstring injury, although he stretched with the team. If Barbre does not play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, rookie guard Isaac Seumalo will start at right tackle.
Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill was absent because of an illness. Tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai remains out with a knee injury.
