The NFL fined Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and offensive lineman La'el Collins for unnecessary roughness in Sunday’s victory over Washington.

Both players were docked $10,300 for throwing punches at defensive lineman William Bradley-King.

Collins and Elliott stepped in to defend Dak Prescott after Bradley-King shoved Prescott as the quarterback threw the ball along the Dallas sideline. Both Cowboys threw punches, but Elliott was not penalized or ejected. Collins was ejected. Bradley-King was not penalized or fined.

Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Collins “did exactly what you’re supposed to do there.”

Washington tight end Sammis Reyes also received a fine out of the game, losing $3,704 for taunting, and Cowboys safety Malik Hooker was docked $5,111 for his unnecessary roughness penalty.

  1. Both fined 10 G’s …… let that sink in. The equivalent to 1 dollar to you and me….
    The world is Upside Down and we keep living in the illusions together.

    ……..

  2. When will McCarthy get fined for approving this behavior? Isn’t this La’el Collins second week of doing this?
