 IRVING, Texas (AP) -Dallas Cowboys safety Roy Williams has been fined for the second time this season for a ``horse-collar'' tackle.
The NFL fined Williams $15,000 for a tackle against running back Marshawn Lynch in Monday night's game at Buffalo. Williams drew a penalty on the play, but the flag was for an incidental facemask and not the tackle.
After a similar tackle against Chicago tight end Desmond Clark last month, Williams was fined $12,500.
Cornerback Terence Newman was fined $5,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit against Lynch on the same play for which Williams was penalized.
In 2005, the NFL outlawed ``horse-collar'' tackles, when a defender grabs the back inside of an opponent's shoulder pads and yanks the player down.
Terrell Owens, then playing for Philadelphia, tore two ankle ligaments and broke his leg after being dragged down by Williams in a game in 2004. That was one of the plays that led the technique being outlawed.
