Source: Dez Bryant fined $7,875
IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was fined $7,875 for a throat-slash penalty following his touchdown catch in Sunday's 31-7 win against the St. Louis Rams, a source told ESPN.com.
"I shouldn't have done it anyway," Bryant, 24, said Monday. "I never put anything with the X. Do the X and go on."
Bryant has 17 catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns for the Cowboys (2-1).
There has been no word whether defensive tackle Jason Hatcher was fined for his roughing-the-passer penalty against the Rams' Sam Bradford, or a fine on cornerback Orlando Scandrick for hitting Bradford high.
