Aaron Donald fined $21,269 for actions on Monday night

Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald picked up back-to-back 15-yard penalties in Monday night’s ugly loss in San Francisco, and the NFL has hit him in the wallet.

Donald was fined a total of $21,269 for his two penalties, with a $9,115 fine for unnecessary roughness and a $12,154 fine for contact with an official, which got him ejected from the game.

It was a disappointing opener for the Rams for plenty of reasons beyond just Donald. But he’s supposed to be their best player, and the Rams can’t afford for Donald to be costing them 15-yard penalties and getting kicked out of games.

Perhaps a fine will incentivize Donald to keep his head in the future. And then the Rams can focus on their many other problems.

    I bet players would keep their cool a little better if they lost their game check when they got thrown out and also got the league fine!

    Just when I thought I couldn’t hate Gregg Williams any more, he turns Aaron Donald into a dirty player. I thought he was the next John Randle but he’s really just the next Ndamukong Suh.

    Good for Donald. He was showing how frustrated he was and that that kind of performance is unacceptable. I would chastise him but this is not an everyday occurrence for him. He is just showing his disappointment in their performance.
