The second-year safety Kazee, who was ejected from the Week 2 game against Carolina, is appealing the fine, NFL Network reported.

Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith was fined the same amount — $10,026 — for his retaliation, flying in to shove Kazee, drawing a penalty flag for unnecessary roughness.

Falcons defensive end Takk McKinley was also fined $10,026. On Friday, McKinley was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints due to a groin injury.

Running back Devonta Freeman (knee), defensive end Derrick Shelby (groin) and linebacker Corey Nelson (calf) will also miss the contest.
