Ho, hum: Trueblood fined -- again



RT Jeremy Trueblood has been fined by the NFL again, this time a $7,500 penalty for unnecessary roughness against the Lions on Sunday.

Trueblood grabbed an opponent's face mask and held on past the whistle at Detroit, an infraction that wasn't flagged during the game, leaving many scratching their heads.

Trueblood has been fined at least four times this season for on-field conduct and is gaining a reputation -- fairly or unfairly -- for being a dirty player.
