Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins fined $6,076

Jenkins may have returned to his old form, but he’s still getting hit in the pocket.

The Giants corner was fined $ 6,076 by the NFL on Friday after he tossed the football into the stands following his interception against the Chiefs during Sundays’ 12-9 overtime win.

Jenkins picked off an Alex Smith pass late in the fourth quarter and returned it 23 yards to set up a go-ahead field goal for the Giants.

The interception came two weeks after he was suspended for violating team policy and one week after he received criticism for his lack of effort in a loss to the 49ers.

Chiefs linebacker Terrance Smith was also fined $ 24,309 for his blindside hit on Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie during a punt return in that game.
