Josh Norman has learned his punishment for his actions on Sunday against the Giants and it’s a pretty hefty one for the wallet.
Much of the focus on Sunday was on Odell Beckham Jr.’s actions, but one must not overlook that Panthers Josh Norman was no saint either and because of that the NFL has decided to punish him.
On Wednesday it was announced that Norman was fined a total of a little over $26,000 for two separate incidents on Sunday.
According to Jarrett Bell of USA TODAY Sports, Josh Norman was fined $8,681 for grabbing Beckham’s face mask and $17,363 for striking in the head and/or neck area.

Norman is expected to appeal the fines.
As for Beckham, he was suspended one game for his actions, which included a head shot to Norman. He appealed the suspension and has a hearing scheduled for today.
