Aug. 21—Vikings rookie linebacker Christian Elliss was fined $3,731 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness, a source said Saturday.

The fine came after Elliss was penalized in the fourth quarter of last Saturday's 33-6 preseason loss to Denver when he lowered his head to initiate contact while tackling wide receiver Seth Williams.

Elliss is an undrafted rookie from Idaho. He is the son of former NFL star defensive tackle Luther Elliss.
