NFL fines player for lifting quarterback into Salvation Army donation bucket

Twitter: Fox Sports

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was fined more than $13,000 for an unconventional donation left in a Salvation Army bucket during a recent game versus the Washington Redskins.

Elliott was fined $13,369 for his actions in last week’s game, during which he was seen on camera donating $21 to the Salvation Army after scoring a touchdown for the Cowboys in the first quarter.

Later, near the end of the game, Elliott returned to the bucket to make a different addition: his team’s quarterback, Dak Prescott, who scored on a five-yard run for the team.

Sports Illustrated reports that Elliott was fined Saturday, while Prescott himself was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct during the game.{mosads}

The move wasn’t Elliott’s first misadventure involving a Salvation Army donation bucket. He was flagged in 2016 after jumping in the charity group’s bucket after scoring a touchdown during a game.

The Cowboys would go on to defeat Washington in the Thanksgiving Day game by a score of 31-23.
