Darnell Dockett incurs $15,000 fine
By Mike Sando
Playing the Seattle Seahawks is turning into a costly enterprise for Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett.
The Pro Bowl defender incurred a $15,000 fine from the league for diving into receiver Mike Williams' back after Williams was already down following a fourth-quarter reception in Week 7. Officials flagged Dockett for the late hit.
The penalty helped Seattle run out the clock on 22-10 victory.
Last season, the league levied a $7,500 fine against Dockett for pressing his elbow into the neck area of Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
