NFL fines Josh Brent for unnecessary roughness
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – Josh Brent has earned praise from the Cowboys for his play the first two weeks in Jay Ratliff's absence, but the nose tackle also earned a fine from the NFL for a penalty at Seattle.
Brent was fined $7,875 for an unnecessary roughness penalty on the third snap of the game when he shoved Seahawks center Max Unger.
No other Cowboys players received a fine for an on-field incident against the Seahawks.
Left tackle Tyron Smith was fined $15,750 for a Week 1 horse-collar tackle against the New York Giants and has appealed.
