DALLAS (AP) –  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 during the Cowboys final game of the 2013 season.

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.

Green Bay linebacker A.J. Hawk and Baltimore safety James Ihedigbo were each docked $15,750 for hitting defenseless offensive players with the crowns of their helmets.

New Orleans wide receivers Lance Moore and Kenny Stills were fined $7,875 for an illegal end zone celebration. Cleveland cornerback Jordan Poyer was docked $7,875 for grabbing a facemask.
