The NFL fined Eagles placekicker Alex Henery $15,750 for a horse-collar tackle of Chiefs returner Quintin Demps in Philadelphia’s Week Three loss to Kansas City, the league confirmed to PFT on Friday.
The play occurred in the third quarter, when Demps bounced a kickoff return outside and Henery pulled him to the ground by the neck of his jersey. Henery was penalized for that foul, and he was also flagged for a facemask penalty, which was declined.
Henery, 26, is in his third season handling field goals and kickoffs for Philadelphia. He is 5-of-7 on field goals, and he has averaged 67.0 yards on kickoffs, with 7-of-17 going for touchbacks.
