The Las Vegas Raiders and coach Jon Gruden have been fined a total of $650,000 and docked a sixth-round draft pick for repeated violations of the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols.

A person familiar with the punishment says the team has been fined $500,000, Gruden has been docked $150,000 and the draft pick has been stripped because of how the team handled Trent Brown’s positive coronavirus test last month.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. Yahoo first reported the punishments.
