Colts quarterback Logan Thomas has been fined $10,000 for his actions against a reporter in the locker room, the NFL announced Friday.
Thomas was penalized for “conduct detrimental to the league” and was fined $100,000.
Thomas made contact with the reporter after a timeout in the third quarter on Oct. 26 and took his helmet off, which caused a replay review and an indefinite suspension.
He then hit a defenseless linebacker who was standing nearby.
“Logan Thomas made a direct and egregious challenge to an official’s authority to make a ruling on the play in question, and his conduct resulted in the violation of the NFL’s anti-conduct policy,” the league said in a statement.
“Thomas made a conscious and deliberate decision to challenge an official on the field, resulting in the loss of his standing.
As a result of his conduct, he was fined the appropriate amount of money.”
Thomas had been suspended without pay since his October 29 arrest and his contract was not renewed.
The Colts’ winless record this season stands at 8-8.
They have the fifth-worst record in the league and the No. 12 overall draft pick, DeShone Kizer.
