Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

Raiders QB Jamarcus Russell told CBS's Dan Dierdorf on Saturday that he has been fined by the Raiders for being overweight but not for missing any meetings.

This admission came two days after he told Bay Area media he hadn't been fined for either offense this season.

"Not at all," Russell said Thursday, when asked point blank whether he had been fined for being overweight or missing any team meetings. He even turned to public relations director Mike Taylor and implored media members to ask him.

On Sunday, Russell told the media he was fined for being overweight at the start of training camp in late July.
"So, that's over with," Russell said.
