Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was fined $10,000 by the NFL today for talking on a cell phone while in the bench area during the Steelers' 17-13 victory against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Polamalu said he had no comment on the fine when approached today inside the team's locker room after practice.

Polamalu borrowed a cell phone from a team trainer to let his wife know he was OK after leaving the game against the Jaguars with a head injury.

League rules state: "possession of cell phones, PDAs or other electronic equipment in the bench are during a game is strictly prohibited by league policy beginning 90 minutes before kickoff through the end of the game."

Outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley was not fined for his involvement in a skirmish with Jaguars fullback Greg Jones.
