Aaron Donald cost the Rams 15 yards during last week’s wild-card win over the Cardinals when he got into a scuffle with D.J. Humphries after a play. He grabbed Humphries’ facemask and ripped off his helmet, also appearing to grab his throat for a brief moment when the two were going at it.
In addition to the flag, Donald also drew a fine from the NFL. According to Ian Rapoport, Donald was fined $10,815 for the incident. Humphries was not fined for his involvement.
