The league has fined Bears defensive end Adewale Ogunleye $7,500 for the sack that injured Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford last Sunday.
According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun Times, the league ruled that Ogunleye’s takedown of Stafford was a horse-collar tackle. Stafford suffered what has been reported to be a knee subluxation. He is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers.
Ogunleye was not flagged on the original play.
Also drawing fines for Chicago in their win over the Lions, were Bears wideout Rashied Davis ($5K for a crackback), Lions corner Anthony Henry ($7.5K for a horse-collar tackle) and Lions running back Kevin Smith ($5K for a facemask).
