Report: Cowboys' Adams fined 50k for hit on Tuck

From ESPNDallas.com:

The NFL will fine Cowboys offensive tackle Flozell Adams $50,000 for his personal foul on Sunday, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Tuesday.

Adams pushed New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck in the back, sending him to the ground. Adams, through his agent Jordan Woy, told the league he thought the play was still alive.

Earlier Tuesday, a league source told ESPN.com's Matt Mosley that Adams would likely avoid a suspension from the NFL, which normally notifies teams by Tuesday if a player will not be allowed to play in that week's game.

Adams, who has a history of run-ins with the Giants, caused injury to Tuck in Week 2 when he stuck out his leg and tripped him, causing Tuck to fall to the ground and land on his shoulder.

In that same game, Adams kicked Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora. He was fined $12,500 for the two fouls.

One week earlier, in Dallas' season opener against Tampa Bay, Adams was fined $5,000 for unnecessary roughness.

After Sunday's game, Tuck lashed out at Adams.

"I laugh at stuff like that," he said. "It just just proves what kind of dirtbag he is."
