Post-tackle contact with Cody Fajardo has cost Chris Casher some cash.

From the league: Calgary Stampeders defensive end Chris Casher was fined for unnecessary roughness on Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Cody Fajardo.

The Riders’ quarterback was sacked by Cordarro Law and Casher proceeded to grasp the ankle and attempt to injure Fajardo. He was kicked out of the game and assessed a 25-yard penalty for the infraction.

Casher was acquired in a trade with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers earlier in the season. He’s played 13 games recording 26 tackles and five sacks during his rookie year in the CFL.

The infraction took place during Calgary’s crucial win against Saskatchewan in Week 18.
