Paul announced the fine Wednesday on his Twitter account. He added that it was a ''Horrible way to start off my bye week!''

The fifth-round draft pick crashed into Rams returner Austin Pettis late in the second quarter of Sunday's 17-10 win. Paul was assessed a 15-yard personal foul penalty on the play.
