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.
