Cowboys’ Cameron Lawrence Fined $21,000

Cameron_lawrence_2013The only flag on Dwayne Harris‘ 90-yard punt return for a touchdown last Sunday night against the Redskins was on Redskins special teams coach Keith Butler for making contact with an official along the sideline, but the NFL has handed out a fine for another incident during that play.

Cowboys linebacker Cameron Lawrence has been fined $21,000 for a blindside block on Redskins cornerback David Amerson while Harris was making his return. Because Lawrence, who was playing his first game after being promoted from the practice squad, will pay out the fine in installments as he’s making the league minimum of $405,000 this season.
