NEW YORK (AP) – The NFL has fined the New York Jets $100,000 for violating league rules when assistant coach Sal Alosi tripped Miami's Nolan Carroll on the sideline during a punt return.

The Jets were fined Thursday because Alosi placed players in a prohibited area on the sideline to impede opposing team's special teams players and gain a competitive advantage. The NFL called it a competitive violation as well as a dangerous tactic.

Alosi and special teams coach Mike Westhoff also have been cited for public comments accusing other teams of employing similar tactics.

The Jets suspended Alosi without pay for the rest of the season after the Dec. 12 incident and fined him $25,000.
