It looks like Odell Beckham Jr. isn't the only player who was fined following Monday Night's 24-10 Vikings victory over the New York Giants.

According to a few reports, it looks like Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon received a notice from the NFL for his touchdown celebration.

McKinnon's celebration was not flagged by officials during the game, but the league tagged it after having some time to review the film of the game.

We'll see if McKinnon brings his dancing shoes on Sunday when the Vikings host the Houston Texans.
