Lions WR Nate Burleson played to the Detroit crowd in last Sunday's big win over the Rams. But his actions cost him on Thursday.

Burleson lifted his jersey during pregame introductions and revealed a shirt with "What up doe" written on it. After scoring a touchdown, Burleson punted the ball into the stands.

Burleson has been fined $15,000 for breaking celebration rules and uniform policies, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
