ALAMEDA, Calif. -- When Tyler Brayton got back to the Oakland locker room after being ejected for kneeing Seattle tight end Jerramy Stevens in the groin, he counted on facing a suspension.

The infraction happened on national television and he heard the commentators compare him to Tennessee cheap-shot artist Albert Haynesworth, making a suspension seem like an inevitable punishment.

The NFL spared Brayton a suspension Wednesday, ruling that Stevens was also to blame for the altercation and fining both players instead. Brayton got docked $25,000 and Stevens will lose $15,000 for their behavior in Seattle's 16-0 victory over Oakland on Monday night.
