Cowboys' DeMarcus Ware fined for hit on Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger

DeMarcus Ware was fined $15,750 for his roughing the passer penalty against the Steelers on Sunday. DeMarco Murray was also fined.

DeMarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys was hit with a fine of $15,750 on Thursday, the fine was a result of a penalty in last Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ware was flagged for roughing the passer in the fourth quarter when he hit Ben Roethlisberger in the back of the head with his right arm, giving the Steelers 15 yards. The Cowboys forced the Steelers to punt on that drive anyway, and would eventually win the game in overtime after Roethlisberger threw an interception to set up the game-winning field goal.

Ware was not the only Cowboys' player that was hit with a fine in that game, as running back DeMarco Murray was also contacted by the league office. Murray's wallet will be $7,875 lighter after grabbing a facemask during a first quarter run. The incident was not flagged for a penalty, but the NFL deemed it worthy of a fine anyway.
