The Hines Ward rule has cost Shaun Chapas a lot of money.
Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com reports that Chapas received a $20,000 fine for leveling Cardinals linebacker Reggie Walker during a punt return. Archer points out that Chapas made only $22,000 for the game.
Chapas was not penalized on the play. Archer said that agent Hadley Englehard has said Chapas will appeal the fine.
