Peyton Manning fined for taunt

Aug. 28, 2014 at 2:27 PM   |   Comments

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was fined for taunting Houston's D.J. Swearinger after the Texans defensive back forced Denver receiver Wes Welker out of last week's preseason game with a concussion.

Welker left the contest after taking a hit from Swearinger late in the first half and Manning completed a touchdown pass on the next play. Manning raced into the end zone and yelled at Swearinger, drawing a taunting penalty.

The Denver Post and ESPN reported the fine to be $8,258 and Manning was quoted by ESPN as saying it was "money well spent."

Welker is still recovering from the concussion, his third in the past 10 months, and coach John Fox has said the receiver will return when he's medically cleared.
