Washington’s Moss fined $22K for abusive language

NEW YORK (AP) – Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss has been fined $22,050 by the NFL for language deemed “abusive and insulting” directed at game officials.
   
Moss was ejected from the Redskins’ 24-13 loss to the New York Giants last Sunday when he stormed after officials after Washington lost a touchdown on the final play of the first half on a video review.
   
Robert Griffin III scrambled for an apparent 8-yard touchdown and a 17-7 lead, but a review by referee Jeff Triplette showed the quarterback lost control of the ball diving over the pylon and the play was ruled a touchback. The lead stayed at 10-7.
   
Triplette ejected Moss for inappropriate language directed at him and field judge Alex Kemp.
