Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (9) screams in pain after getting hit by Green Bay Packers linebacker Sam Barrington (58) in the third quarter during Sunday's game at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay Packers inside linebacker Sam Barrington picked up his second fine in three weeks ($16,537) for roughing Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford in the third quarter of Sunday's game at Lambeau Field.

Barrington wasn't flagged on the play.

He was fined the same amount for a horse-collar tackle against Buffalo on Dec. 15.

Meanwhile, Lions running back Reggie Bush was fined $8,268 for grabbing the face mask of cornerback Casey Hayward during a sideline collision Sunday. But Packers linebacker Brad Jones wasn't fined for making contact with Stafford's helmet near the end of the first half.
