Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden has been fined $15,000 by the NFL for roughing the passer, and San Diego Chargers linebacker Antwan Barnes was docked $25,000 for unnecessary physical contact with an official. Walden was penalized by the league on Friday for striking Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the head and neck area. He was whistled for a penalty in the third quarter of Green Bay's 45-41 victory last weekend. Barnes was ejected after being called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the first quarter of San Diego's 38-26 victory over the Oakland Raiders. After being ejected, Barnes took off his helmet and yelled at officials. He led the Chargers this season with 11 sacks.
