Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley is learning quickly that the retaliator is the one who typically gets caught in NFL altercations.

Blocked after the whistle had blown by Cleveland Browns center Alex Mack, Mosley slugged the Pro Bowl blocker with a left hook that sent Mack flailing to the ground. Mosley was flagged for unnecessary roughness while Mack wasn't penalized.

Now, Mosley is bracing for a fine from the league office. The first-round draft pick from Alabama was previously fined $8,268 for a late hit on Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard in his first NFL game.

"It's always the second one who gets caught, so I've got to be smarter," Mosley said. "That's on me. I haven't been fined yet, but I will be waiting for it in the mail."
