The NFL fined Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh for a horse collar tackle he made in Sunday's game in Tampa.
Sensabaugh will fork over $5,000 for the tackle on Carnell Williams in the second quarter of Sunday's game.
The Star-Telegram reports Sensabaugh will appeal the decision. "I grabbed the back of the guy's jersey," Sensabaugh said.
The horse collar tackle was a signature tackle for former Cowboys player Roy Williams. The NFL banned the tackle in the 2005 season.
