Cowboys defensive end George Selvie and cornerback Orlando Scandrick have been informed by the NFL that they’ll be fined for illegal hits dished out in the 45-28 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday.
According to ESPN Dallas, Selvie was fined $15,750 for a roughing the passer penalty, called when Selvie hit Bears quarterback Josh McCown low while trying to finish a sack.
Scandrick was docked $21,000 for an unnecessary roughness penalty on Bears receiver Brandon Marshall. Replays showed that Scandrick left his feet, while leading with his helmet, and ended up making helmet-to-helmet contact with Marshall (who made the catch anyway).
As per usual in the NFL, both players will probably appeal the fines.
