Source: Frank Walker fined $7,500
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- Frank Walker’s unnecessary roughness penalty cost the Cowboys 15 yards on Thanksgiving and it ended up costing the veteran cornerback $7,500 in a fine from the NFL, according to a source.
Walker shoved Anthony Fasano after the tight end was out of bounds, giving the Dolphins the ball at the Dallas 3. The Cowboys held the Dolphins to a 23-yard field goal three plays later.
It was the third fine of the season for the Cowboys. DeMarcus Ware was fined $15,000 for a hit on Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Kevin Ogletree was fined $7,500 for a facemask in the Week 2 win at San Francisco.
