The month of turbulence for the Washington Commanders continued Friday when the NFL fined head coach Ron Rivera $100,000 and docked the team two OTA practices in 2023 for excessive contact in practice drills, a source confirmed to The Athletic.

The Commanders are among the numerous teams to be penalized for the infraction, as the Cowboys were similarly punished on Thursday and the Texans on Friday. However, neither organization was penalized as severely as Washington.

The fine for Rivera matches the same amount he levied on defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio for his comments on the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

ESPN first reported the news of the Washington punishments.
