No fine for Gerald McCoy after Tony Romo complaint of illegal hit



Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was not fined for a possible helmet-to-helmet hit that prompted Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to register a mild complaint after last Sunday’s game.

McCoy seemed to inadvertently make helmet-to-helmet contact Romo when he sacked the quarterback and forced a fumble in the third quarter at Cowboys Stadium.

After the game, Romo talked about the beating he had taken and referenced the hit.

“There was some other stuff. You probably could have got some helmet-to-helmet on me, I’m sure, on one of those hits,” he said. “I’d be pretty shocked if it felt like that and it wasn’t something there.”

The NFL, it seems, disagrees.
