Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks and Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor got in a fight during Saturday's preseason game, and now they're getting fined.

Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger reports that Nicks and Taylor were each fined $10,000.

Both players were ejected from the game and expressed contrition for the incident.

Nicks said he was blocking Taylor and, "the next thing I knew, he was throwing punches, so I tried to defend myself. I'm disappointed because I let my coaches and teammates down. These preseason games are important because we've got to get our work in as a offense."

Said Taylor, "I lost my cool. . . . It won't happen again."

Punching helmets can be dangerous. You can break your hands. Unless those hands are made of stone. Ike, you're safe, buddy. :mrgreen:
