Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald has been fined $10,815 by the league for his incident with Arizona Cardinals offensive tackle D.J. Humphries in Monday’s Wild Card loss, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Donald and Humphries were among a large group of players for both teams when pushing and shoving ensued.
The two engaged with words and shoves back and forth before the Rams All-Pro seemed to put his hands on Humphries and attempt to choke him.

Humphries was not fined for the incident, according to Rapoport.
The Rams are fortunate that Donald will not miss the Divisional Round playoff game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
The three time Defensive Player of the Year and eight-time Pro Bowler tallied 84 tackles and 12.5 sacks in the 2021 regular season.
He was held relatively quiet in the 34-11 victory over Arizona, posting one tackle and a half sack.
