 ATLANTA (AP) -Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall did not start the Atlanta Falcons' game against the Houston Texans on Sunday after a run-in with the coaching staff the previous week.

The Falcons fined Hall $100,000, which he plans to appeal, and sat him out for the first quarter. Rookie Chris Houston got his first career start at cornerback.
Hall, meanwhile, watched the opening period from the Atlanta bench, wearing a Falcons baseball cap. He had started 43 of the past 44 games, including 19 in a row, and earned Pro Bowl honors the past two seasons.
he continued to go at it with the receiver.
Once Hall got to the sideline, he began to jaw with Petrino and assistant coach Joe Whitt Jr. The player had to restrained by three of his teammates, but he finished the game.
Carolina won 27-20 to keep the Falcons winless.
``I think it's a little bit unfair,'' Hall said during the week. ``But he made his decision, and we need to move on from here. I'll try to rectify it and move on.''
