Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney has been fined $9,115 for a facemask penalty he was assessed in last week’s loss to the Vikings.

Clowney was flagged in the first quarter for grabbing the facemask of Vikings guard Nick Easton. The penalty extended the drive, and the Vikings then scored to make it 14-0.

Clowney told reporters earlier this week he planned to appeal the fine.

    Clowney was actually really impressive against the run in this game. It was against backup linemen for the team with the worst offensive line in football… but still impressive.

    Good grief. Are they fining every infraction these days?

    At least he isn’t injured yet!

    Wait, it’s October and he’s still playing instead already being injured and out for the year?

    Fine for a face mask penalty? What hell is wrong with this league.

    This wouldn’t have gotten any attention at all if not for all the recent worldwide clowney sightings.

    These fines are getting a bit ridiculous. I guess they have to make money somehow when their ratings continue to fall.

    I don’t know; I saw the face mask, definitely a penalty; but also a fine? Seems unnecessary to me. I think they are too quick on the fines this season.

    can’t believe my lowly Packers passed on this guy to select a punter!
