Tyler Brayton fined $15K for sideline trip

Posted by Will Brinson

Last Sunday, Tyler Brayton tripped the Falcons Chris Owens on the sidelines after a play that the Panther wasn't involved in. FOX busted out the video of it, and the NFL announced it was investigating the incident.

The NFL confimed to CBSSports.com today that Brayton was fined $15,000 for the incident, which was first reported by ESPN's Pat Yasinskas (former beat writer in Charlotte).

As noted during The NFL Today by the mothership's Charley Casserly, the NFL is closely watching sidelines to make sure that none of these tripping incidents occur in Week 15.

Tyler Brayton's ankle just sprained, not broken

Posted by Will Brinson

There wasn't a ton of good news for the Carolina Panthers in their first preseason game -- a 17-12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Matt Moore didn't look great, Jimmy Clausen looked promising but not ready, Armanti Edwards can't catch the ball and so forth and so on. (Note: not all of this is devastating, but it's not great).

One thing that did stand out though, was a surprising pass rush that generated six sacks against the Ravens. Considering that defensive line is at the top of weaknesses for the Panthers, that's good news.

Things almost got really worse though, when Tyler Brayton, with two sacks in the first quarter, went to the ground clutching his ankle following that second sack.

Fortunately, though, Brayton, according to Steve Reed of the Gaston Gazette , only sprained the ankle -- as opposed to a break that would have been devastating to the Panthers' pass rush.

Oddly, Brayton's injury was the only one worth noting from a really sloppy (weather-wise) preseason game.
