Cowboys’ Selvie, Scandrick fined for hits

Dallas defenders George Selvie and Orlando Scandrick have been

fined by the NFL for hits in the Cowboys’ loss to Chicago.

Scandrick said Wednesday was docked $21,000 for a

helmet-to-helmet hit on Bears receiver Brandon Marshall. The

cornerback drew an unnecessary roughness penalty on the first play

of the fourth quarter Monday night.

Selvie was fined for a hit below the knees against Chicago

quarterback Josh McCown in the second quarter. The defensive end

was penalized for roughing the passer. Selvie didn’t specify the

amount but said he planned to appeal the fine.

The Bears scored on their first eight possessions in a 45-28

victory that knocked the Cowboys out of first place in the NFC

East.
