Detroit Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah was fined $22,050 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Chicago Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen Sunday.
The hit occurred late in the fourth quarter on the Bears’ final drive of the game, when Ansah hit Clausen in the head as he slid after a 2-yard gain.
Clausen suffered a concussion on the play, but stayed in the game and threw a game-ending interception four plays later. He will not play in the Bears’ finale against the Vikings.
Lions center Dominic Raiola was suspended one game earlier this week for stomping on the ankle of Bears defensive tackle Ego Ferguson in that game.
Raiola, who will miss Sunday’s NFC North showdown against the Green Bay Packers, will lose one game check, or about $73,000, while sitting out this weekend.
