The NFL has finalized at least two disciplinary measure from last Sunday's game at Soldier Field.

Detroit Lions defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch was fined $7,500 for hitting Chicago Bears tailback Matt Forte when he was already on the ground in the first quarter of the Bears' 37-13 victory. And as expected, Bears receiver Earl Bennett was fined $10,000 for wearing orange cleats in a second consecutive game, a violation of gameday dress code. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed both fines.

We still haven't heard of any ruling on the fourth-quarter fracas between the teams that ended with the ejection of Bears cornerback D.J. Moore. It's also possible that the NFL will address contact between Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, which resulted in the removal of Cutler's helmet.

Stay tuned.
