IRVING, Texas -- For weeks Philadelphia has been upset at the amount of unnecessary hits Michael Vick has taken. The Eagles cannot complain anymore.
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Spencer was fined $12,500 for his personal foul penalty on Vick in the second quarter of Sunday’s 30-27 loss to Philadelphia at Cowboys Stadium.
Spencer was deemed to have hit Vick in the head area after the quarterback released a pass. Two plays later Vick was intercepted by Gerald Sensabaugh. Spencer was not fined for his hit on Vick near the sideline in the first quarter, which also drew the ire of the Eagles.
The fine represents nearly 30 percent of Spencer’s weekly game check. He makes $43,588 per week with a $741,000 base salary.
