Packers OLB Kingsley Enagbare fined $5K for hit on QB in Week 8

A late update: Green Bay Packers edge rusher Kingsley Enagbare was fined by the NFL for an illegal hit on the quarterback during Week 8 of the 2023 season.

Enagbare was penalized 15 yards for roughing the passer win at the 4:54 mark of the first quarter during the Packers’ 24-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The league fined him $5,170 for a penalty that falls under the league’s “gameday accountability” umbrella.

It represents Enagbare’s first fine of the season. Overall, 31 different actions or penalties resulted in a fine during Week 8 of the NFL season.

Enagbare is the first Packers player to be fined under the system since Week 3 and the fifth fine for a Packers player overall this season.

Vikings defensive end D.J. Wonnum was fined $16,832 for an illegal hit on Packers quarterback Jordan Love in Week 8. His infraction came in the first quarter with 1:13 left on a sack of Love that wasn’t penalized.

The league is posting all fined penalties and actions from the previous week on Saturdays this season.

From the NFL: “Players subject to accountability measures receive a letter informing them of what they did, a video of the play in question, why they are being fined and how much it will cost them. They also receive information on how to appeal the fine. If they choose not to appeal, the fine is withheld from their next game check.”

All appeals are handled appeals officers James Thrash and Derrick Brooks, two former players appointed by the NFL and NFLPA. Fines are donated to the Professional Athletes Foundation.

Packers Wire will track the on-field penalties and resulting fines in recurring posts each week.
