The team was fined because several Ravens wore
helmets with coach-to-player communications while on the field
at the same time, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said.
The Ravens issued a statement on social media:
"The Ravens' equipment staff misunderstood that this league rule
applied in the pre season. Ravens coaches were unaware that
multiple players had communication devices in their helmets
while on the field at the same time."
Baltimore already was fined earlier this year for an infraction
of the collective bargaining agreement. In June, an undisclosed
infraction forced the team to forfeit two organized team
activities. Owner Steve Bisciotti and coach John Harbaugh were
fined $100,000 and $50,000, respectively.
In 2016, the Ravens and Harbaugh were fined $343,057 and
$137,223, respectively, for an infraction in OTAs. The team also
had to cancel some workouts in 2010 for another violation.
