George Selvie, Orlando Scandrick fined
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – Monday’s 45-28 loss to the Chicago Bears was costly for the Dallas Cowboys in the standings, and it was costly to defensive end George Selvie and cornerback Orlando Scandrick in the wallet.
According to a source, Selvie was fined $15,750 and Scandrick was fined $21,000 for illegal hits.
Selvie was fined for a second-quarter roughing the passer penalty when he hit Bears quarterback Josh McCown below the knee. The 15-yard penalty was added to a 26-yard completion to Alshon Jeffery.
Scandrick was fined for a fourth-quarter unnecessary roughness penalty when he hit wide receiver Brandon Marshall on a 22-yard completion. The hit was deemed to be on a defenseless player.
Selvie was not fined for a third-quarter roughing the passer penalty in which official Terry McAulay said he made contact with McCown’s head as the quarterback was being hit by Bruce Carter.
Both players are expected to appeal the fines.
