Myles Garrett was wreaking havoc in the backfield against the Jets on Monday night, but it seems that he was going a bit too hard for the NFL's liking.

Garrett picked up three sacks against the Jets in Week 2, but he was flagged on two of them for roughing the passer, including one hit which ended Trevor Siemian's season.

As a result, the NFL has slapped him with a hefty fine-- he'll be forced to fork over $42,112 for the pair of hits.

Some questions were raised as to whether Garrett intentionally hurt Siemian, though the former No. 1 overall pick has emphatically denied those claims. Still, despite his lack of intent, he's going to pay the price for his big hits.

Garrett has racked up five sacks through just two games this season, and hopefully getting fined by the league doesn't dissuade him from playing with the same level of intensity.

Garrett won't be paying too much attention to his bank account however, as he'll have his sights fixated on getting after Jared Goff-- and hopefully avoiding any roughing the passer the calls in the process.
