Mike Jenkins fined by NFL
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins was fined $7,875 by the NFL for an unnecessary roughness penalty in the 38-31 loss to Washington on Thanksgiving.
Jenkins was docked for knocking Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon to the ground well after Garcon scored on a 59-yard touchdown reception from Robert Griffin III. Washington receiver Santana Moss came to Garcon’s defense and had a brief shoving match with Jenkins.
