Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was fined $7875 for a throat-slash penalty following his touchdown catch in last Sunday's 31-7 win against the St. Louis Rams a source told ESPN.com.

Bryant apologized Monday for his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after his customary "X" signal when he scored. He also said he would appeal any fine.

"I shouldn't have done it anyway" Bryant said Monday. "I never put anything with the X. Do the X and go on."

Bryant 24 has 17 catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns over the first three games this season.
