Lions CB Alphonso Smith Fined $15,750 For Horse Collar Tackle
Lions cornerback Alphonso Smith was fined $15,750 for his horsecollar tackle on receiver Brandon Marshall in Monday’s night’s loss to the Chicago Bears.
Smith was called for a penalty early in the second quarter when he tackled Marshall by the shoulder with two hands after a 15-yard gain.
That play and penalty, plus another 20-yard pass to Marshall, put the Bears in field-goal range for a kick that Lawrence Jackson blocked.
Smith played 29 of 72 defensive snaps against the Bears in his first game back with the Lions after being released in August.
He worked with the Lions’ first-team nickel defense today and will see significant action Sunday against the Seahawks if rookie Bill Bentley does not play because of his shoulder injury.
