NFL Hands Out Fines To Matthew Stafford, Nick Fairley, Rob Sims, D.J. Moore

The NFL has handed out several fines stemming from last Sunday's Lions-Bears game. On Thursday, it came out that Lions defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch was fined $7,500 for a late hit and Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett was fined $10,000 for wearing orange shoes.

Today, we found out that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and offensive guard Rob Sims were each fined $7,500 and Bears cornerback D.J. Moore was fined $15,000. Stafford's fine was for his takedown of Moore, who was docked twice as much money for his late hit on Stafford that caused a bit of a brawl and resulted in an ejection. According to Dave Birkett, Sims' fine was for "jumping on the pile late."

Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was fined $15,000 for his roughing the passer penalty, according to Jason La Canfora. Fairley took down Bears quarterback Jay Cutler by driving him into the ground after a pass had been thrown, so it's no surprise he was fined $15,000.

There's no word right now on if there are other fines from the Lions-Bears game, but it wouldn't surprise me if there are still more to come given all that happened last Sunday.

UPDATE: It appears the NFL has decided not to fine Julius Peppers, Lance Briggs and Ndamukong Suh.
