    The Cowboys likely don't agree with the league on its assessment of punishment for two recent hits.

    Cowboys cornerback Micah Pellerin was fined $15,750 for unnecessary roughness on Cardinals punt returner Charles Hawkins during last Saturday's game. Pellerin was flagged 15 yards for the hit, which the league deemed "striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area."

    The Cowboys and Dez Bryant had expected former teammate Mike Jenkins to be fined for a hit he applied to Bryant in the Aug. 9 game in Oakland. The Raiders cornerback lined up Bryant after a 26-yard reception and hit Bryant so hard that Jenkins lost his helmet.

    Jenkins was neither penalized nor fined for the hit.
