Tracy Walker was fined $12,500 for his comments on officiating following Monday night's loss to Green Bay. Walker called the officiating – and that call in particular – "awful." Walker told ESPN on Wednesday he would not have approached the play any differently. He also knew there was a chance he could get fined for his comments. "That situation comes up," Walker said. "I'll deal with it when it comes."

Lions safety Tracy Walker, after watching the unnecessary roughness penalty again, said "I couldn't have done nothing else better, legit, nothing else better," on the collision with Geronimo Allison on Monday night. He said he hasn't heard from the NFL about his postgame comments but that if "that situation comes up, I'll deal with it when it comes. But I don't think about it right now. That's not going to affect me. If I consequences because of what I said, whatever, I got to handle it."

A bunch of Lions limited on Wednesday, but not surprising with a short week:

On the Tracy Walker unnecessary roughness call, Matt Patricia said "a lot of the onus is put on the defensive player to make sure that they see the contact coming, see the body angles and the leverage and we got to do a good job. First and foremost the game is going to be about safety, both players that are in defenseless positions and also the players that are coming through and giving the hits."

Matt Patricia said he hadn't seen Troy Vincent's comments yet, but he did say this about last night: "For me, obviously there were some calls in the game that everyone is focused on right now. I'm focused on the ones that we got to do right out on the field through execution and coaching and playing. I think if you go through a game and are relying on the officials to tell you whether or not you won, I don't really think you're going to turn out in a favorable manner more times than not."

NFL: Second flag on Lions' Flowers was error

The NFL acknowledged that a second hands-to-the-face call against Lions DE Trey Flowers on Monday night was an error. "The foul wasn't there," executive VP Troy Vincent said.

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, when asked how he thinks pass interference has been called this year, said that essentially it's not called. Said they aren't coaching their receivers any differently because of it.

Lions safety Walker goes off on referees after loss

Detroit safety Tracy Walker said he wasn't even trying to make contact with Packers receiver Geronimo Allison and was going for a potential interception of an Aaron Rodgers pass.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions safety Tavon Wilson was moving fine after the game. Said he got hit with a helmet and that he was lucky — and that he's fine. It'll be worth monitoring on a short week but that's good news for Detroit.
