Denver Broncos linebacker Todd Davis will have a little lighter paycheck this week after committing a horse-collar tackle against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

According to Mike Klis of 9NEWS, Davis has been fined $18,231 for the infraction.

Davis put his hand in the back of the shoulder pads of Buccaneers running back Charles Sims after Sims had caught a pass from Jameis Winston. He pulled Sims down from behind and was flagged for the violation.

The amount is the minimum the league can assess for first-offense incidents of horse-collar tackles.
