NEW YORK - Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for using the crown of his helmet to hit Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Damion Square on Sunday night.
Murray was not penalized in the game, but the league announced the fine for the blow on Friday. The NFL banned ballcarriers from making contact with defenders in the open field with the crown of their helmets.
