Not even the bye week can go right for the New Orleans Saints.
The fine is connected to a 3rd-and-17 play after a Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back brought in a 7-yard reception from quarterback Tom Brady with a little more than 7 minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Jordan nearly closed in on a sack, and fell awkwardly while trying to make the play and was walking carefully down the field. He went down to a knee as the Tampa Bay punt team had begun to take the field but Brady waved them off, looking to keep the offense on to potentially go for it on fourth-and-long.

As noted by ESPN’s Katherine Terrell, Jordan didn’t return to the game until four plays into the next Buccaneers possession.
Jordan tweeted about the fine on Saturday:
The Monday night incident followed a Sunday afternoon meeting between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals in which a Bengals defender clearly faked an injury to avoid taking a 12 men on the field penalty.
The Saints fines are expected to be appealed.
