Not only is DeMarco Murray watching the playoffs this weekend, his wallet is lighter for a hit last week.
The Cowboys running back was fined $21,000 for leading with the crown of his helmet during last week’s loss to the Eagles, which kept the Cowboys out of the postseason.
It was a huge hit on Eagles defensive lineman Damion Square, flooring him in the open field. But it was clear at the time Murray would be making a donation.
For all the emphasis on the rule last offseason, it hasn’t been as widely called this year, as backs don’t seem to be doing things that much differently.
