Rookie CB Corey Graham will be playing for about half pay this Sunday.
Graham's check was light $7,500 this week as the NFL fined him for a horse-collar tackle of returner Troy Walters in Detroit.
Graham drew a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty on the play, which was one of three unassisted special teams tackles he made during the game.
As a rookie with a base salary of $285,000, Graham's weekly check is less than $17,000. He said Thursday he was not sure if he would appeal the fine, that he was not familiar with the process.
The horse collar rule was named after Dallas S Roy Williams, who broke Terrell Owens' leg in 2004 with such a tackle. Williams horse-collared TE Desmond Clark during the meeting with the Cowboys Sept. 23 at Soldier Field. He was fined $12,500, but the difference is he is a repeat offender.
