Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins was fined for $7,875 for a late hit on Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon in the end zone during Washington’s 38-31 victory on Thanksgiving, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Garcon scored on a 59-yard touchdown catch-and-run. Jenkins chased Garcon, and kept trying to grab him after he crossed the goal line, and eventually shoved him out of the back of the end zone.

Fellow receiver Santana Moss immediately tussled with Jenkins, and Garcon got up and separated both players.
