ASHBURN, Va. -- A person familiar with the situation says DeAngelo Hall has been fined $30,000 for his confrontation with an official in the Washington Redskins' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last month.

The person said Wednesday that Hall will not be suspended for the incident late in the Steelers' 27-12 win Oct. 28.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL hasn't announced the fine.

Hall removed his helmet and berated an official after being pulled to the ground by Pittsburgh receiver Emmanuel Sanders during a running play. Officials whistled Hall for two 15-yard penalties and ejected him from the game.

Coach Mike Shanahan later said Sanders should have been flagged for wrestling Hall to the ground, but that Hall also needed to show better restraint.
