Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall received a $20,000 fine for his horse collar tackle on Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson in Monday night’s game, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

Hall is expected to appeal the fine, the person said.

Hall’s tackle on Jackson also came out of bounds. It drew a 15-yard penalty.

Hall last season received $65,750 in fines for three separate incidents.

Having been at the game, Redskins CB D’Angelo Hall did make a horse collar tackle but, the tackle started in bounds which should not have constituted a 15 yard penalty.
