TORONTO -- Defensive back Dwight Anderson was fined for objectionable conduct Wednesday by the CFL.

The league fined Anderson for making a "throat slashing" gesture towards the Edmonton bench in Saskatchewan's 39-18 season-opening win Saturday.

Anderson was also penalized for being abusive towards officials during the game.

He received two objectionable conduct penalties in the contest for his actions.

As per league policy, the CFL didn't divulge the amount of the fine.
