Having been fined repeatedly in his NFL career, Marshawn Lynch is no stranger to losing money. Unfortunately, his current stint on the Oakland Raiders' injured reserve is likely to cost a pretty penny.

According to Spotrac, Lynch will be forced to forfeit up to $468,750 in per-game-active bonuses now that's he on IR.

Lynch was placed on the season-ending IR list earlier today after an injury that was expected to keep him out of action for at least a month.

Luckily, Lynch was still able to pocket a cool $4.03 million in salary this year.

Lynch led the Raiders in rushing in 2017 with 891 rushing yards and seven TDs. He had over 1,000 yards from scrimmage on the season.

The 32-year-old RB led the team in rushing yards as of the injury.

Lynch joined the Raiders on a two-year deal after spending 2016 out of football. He is in the final year of his contract with the team.
