    Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith has been fined just over $20,000 for an illegal hit to Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins last weekend.

    Smith was flagged for roughing the passer on the hit, where his helmet came into contact with Cousins’ helmet on the play.

    Smith’s exact fine is $20,054 for the hit, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

    The fine is the first of Smith’s career, and he is the eighth different Bears player to be hit with a fine this season. Josh Bellamy has been fined twice over the last month of the season, and Leonard Floyd was fined for two separate hits during a Week 6 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
