Two Detroit Lions players were fined by the league due to actions committed in the first two weeks of the season on Saturday. Linebacker Jamie Collins Sr. was fined $35,096 by the league for making contact with a referee in Week 1, an act that saw him disqualified from the game. Guard Oday Aboushi was fined for the amount of $5,221 for an unnecessary roughness call he received in Week 2.

Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Collins is appealing his fine.

“It wasn’t intentional. It is what it is. They called it. They threw me out. I can’t do nothing about it, but take it on the chin and hope for the best, get ready for this week,” Collins told reporters when asked about the incident last week.

Collins ejection came in his first career game for Detroit after signing with the team on a three-year deal this offseason. He was not suspended for the act, and featured for the team against the Green Bay Packers last week.

Aboushi is playing his second season with the team, and was thrust into a significant role last week after starting guard Joe Dahl missed a game with an injury. Dahl is on injured reserve, so Aboushi may start again this week.

UPDATE: Per ESPN’s Michael Rothstein, safety Will Harris was handed a fine of $5,371 for an unnecessary roughness call in Week 2.

Kyle Fuller of the Chicago bears was fined for a play against the Lions in Week 1.
