In The End, Steelers Center Fined By NFL
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Pittsburgh Steelers center Cody Wallace has been fined by $7,875 by the NFL after he went too far trying to recover a fumbled ball against the Miami Dolphins last weekend.
CBS cameras caught Wallace shoving his hand into Miami Dolphins defense tackle Randy Starks’ privates during a pile-up on a fumbled ball. Starks had received the fumble and the pile was being pulled apart when Wallace decided to shove his hand into Starks.
In the video, Starks could be seen reacting angrily when Wallace made his move.

“I’ve heard of stuff like that happening. This is the first time it has happened to me,” Starks told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Starks also told the Sun-Sentinel that his teammates have been having some fun with him over the incident.
“They are getting on me, [asking for results of the] prostate [exam] and stuff like that. I’m hearing it,” Starks said.
