GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has been fined $26,250 for contact with an official, per NFL guidelines.

Williams told reporters Thursday that he planned to appeal. He said he didn't realize he had made contact with the official, and meant no harm.

The contact occurred after a Lions touchdown early in the fourth quarter of Green Bay's 40-10 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. A replay appeared to show Williams looking away while walking forward, just behind Lions centre Dominic Raiola, when the official crossed in between the two players. Williams received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Williams said he had been shoved by Raiola just after the touchdown. He said he was frustrated on the play.
