Mathieu, Dockett among Cards fined

October, 18, 2013
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Three Arizona Cardinals were fined for actions during Sunday’s game in San Francisco.

The heftiest fine went to nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu, who was docked $10,000 for kicking 49ers guard Alex Boone in the face. Boone was fined for $7,875 for retaliating.

Darnell Dockett was fined $7,875 for a late hit on San Francisco running back Frank Gore in the second quarter that also resulted in an unnecessary roughness penalty.

And rookie safety Tyrann Mathieu was fined $7,875 for body slamming Niners running back Kendall Hunter after he scored in the fourth quarter.

No word if any of the three Cardinals will appeal.
