The NFL has fined Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett $7,500 for his elbow to the throat of Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.

The league said the fine was for "roughing the passer."

Seattle coach Jim Mora had complained that it was a dirty play by Dockett, who responded it was an accident. Dockett said he has too much respect for Hasselbeck to ever intentionally hurt the Seahawks quarterback.

The incident occurred while Hasselbeck was lying on his back during Arizona's 31-20 victory over Seattle last Sunday.
