Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins has been fined $7,875 for pushing Pierre Garcon to the ground well after the Washington receiver crossed the goal line on a 59-yard touchdown last week.

LET'S GET NUTS!

NFL fans are a special breed, and they bring their own brand of craziness on game day.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed Thursday that Jenkins was fined. Jenkins was penalized for unnecessary roughness for the shove on Garcon in the end zone during the Redskins' 38-31 victory on Thanksgiving.

The former first-round pick has seen limited playing time as the third cornerback behind Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne. He figures to be on the field more with nickel cornerback Orlando Scandrick injured.

Jenkins missed training camp and the season opener after offseason shoulder surgery, and complained about not getting a new contract. He's in the final year of his rookie deal.
