Bears DE fined for Stafford tackle

Chicago Bears defensive end Adewale Ogunleye has been fined by the NFL  for unnecessary roughness on a play that injured Matthew Stafford in last Sunday’s game, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The ruling was that when he sacked Stafford in the fourth quarter he made a horse collar tackle.  A penalty was not called on the play.

Stafford injured his right knee on the play and had to leave the game. He is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers, but it would be a surprise if he played.  

The Sun-Times also reported other fines from the game: Bears wide receiver Rashied Davis $5,000 for an illegal crackback block; Detroit cornerback Anthony Henry $7,500 for a horse collar tackle and Detroit running back Kevin Smith $5,000 for a facemask infraction.
