Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald continues to rack up fines from the NFL for some of his actions on the field.

Donald was fined more than $18,000 for unnecessary roughness after the league reviewed the end of the Rams' 31-28 defeat at Detroit last week.

With the Lions in victory formation to run out the clock, Donald charged off the line of scrimmage and pushed into the Lions offensive front and quarterback Matthew Stafford as Stafford took a knee.

Rams Coach Jeff Fisher said this week that he apologized to Lions Coach Jim Caldwell after the game.

"We'll address it and it's unlikely that it'll happen again," Fisher said.

Donald was fined just over $21,000 for unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties that led to his ejection in the season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
