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
