Even though the Raiders got a win Monday night, it hardly was a banner week for rookie safety Johnathan Abram.
After being placed on injured reserve following a shoulder injury suffered in his first NFL game, Abram found out Friday that the league would fine him $28,075 for the hit that caused the rotator cuff tear that ended the first-round draft pick's season, a source confirmed to NBC Sports California's Scott Bair.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Media first reported the news Saturday morning, citing a source.
Abram now plans to appeal the punishment, a second source confirmed to Bair, citing that he led with his shoulder -- as that's how he ended up having surgery Friday.
Abram's hit did not result in a flag, but it was on the same play that caused cornerback Gareon Conley to be carried out on a stretcher with a neck injury.
So even though Abram now is 1-0 in his NFL career, it appears that it was quite a pyrrhic victory for the 22-year-old.
