The NFL is fining Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy $100,000 and removing a 2023 OTA practice from the team after deeming a session from this year's OTAs was too physical, according to multiple reports.

McCarthy was fined last year for a similar infraction.

Earlier this year the NFL forced the Chicago Bears to cancel a scheduled organized team activity practice in June after violating the non-contact offseason rules during previous sessions in May, a source confirmed to The Athletic.

Practices with live contact during OTAs are barred by the collective bargaining agreement. Live contact practice sessions aren’t allowed until a few days into training camp.

The league also fined the Jaguars $200,000 and then-coach Urban Meyer $100,000 under similar circumstances last offseason.
