NFL fines umpire Roy Ellison for dispute with Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes

AP

A person familiar with the move says the NFL has fined umpire Roy Ellison $9,300 and reinstated him from administrative leave after his dispute in Miami with Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes.

The person confirmed the fine to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the league hadn’t commented. The fine is the amount of one game check for Ellison.

TV video showed Hughes confronting Ellison in the tunnel near the locker room after the Dolphins’ win over the Bills on Dec. 2 and accusing the official of using a derogatory term.
