Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware was fined $15,000 for a roughing the passer penalty in a hit on Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick last Sunday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Ware's actions resulted in a 15-yard penalty against the Cowboys on the first play from scrimmage in the second half after he hit Fitzpatrick in the head and neck area.

Other fines reported Thursday:

» Detroit Lions defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch was fined $7,500 for a late hit on Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte, according to ESPN. It is the first known fine from a feisty game that featured several personal foul penalties.
