Lions' Avril also slapped with $15,000 fine

ALLEN PARK -- Ndamukong Suh wasn’t the only Lions’ defensive lineman hit with a $15,000 fine after the Bears game on Sunday.

Defensive end Cliff Avril was fined $15,000 for roughing the passer -- Chicago’s Jay Cutler. Avril was called for the penalty in the second quarter.

“I didn’t even hit him in the face, that’s the crazy part. I’m going to appeal mine also,’’ Avril said.

Just like Suh, Avril said he can’t let it affect the way he plays.

“It definitely hurts my pocket, I just go out there and try to play hard. You never want to get any fines or any penalties, but sometimes in the process of being physical you get them,’’ Avril said.

It’s Avril’s first fine this season.
