Bills DE Shaq Lawson fined more than $33K for fight with Leonard Fournette

Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson was handed a $33,425 fine from the NFL for his involvement in Sunday’s fight.

Lawson was ejected from Buffalo’s 24-21 victory over Jacksonville after he was involved in a fight with Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette in the third quarter. 

The exchange happened after Jaguars wide receiver Donte Moncrief had what was initially ruled a 30-yard touchdown reception. Moncrief was battling for control of the ball with Levi Wallace when another Jaguars player hit Bills safety Micah Hyde from behind. Players then started shoving each other, including Lawson who made contact with running back Carlos Hyde. This sparked Fournette to run across the field and confront Lawson.

The two exchanged blows in the corner of the end zone near the Bills sideline before eventually being separated and escorted off the field.

According to ESPN, Lawson told reporters Tuesday that he was expecting a fine and would appeal.

Fournette was suspended without pay for one game and will miss Sunday’s game against the Colts.
