Texans defensive end Jared Crick has been fined $15,750 by the NFL for a roughing the passer foul against Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, the league confirmed to CSNHouston.

Crick was hit with a 15-yard penalty and has now been fined for hitting Smith below the knee area in the first quarter of the Texans' 17-16 loss on Sunday afternoon.

Crick has appealed the fine, according to a league source.

Crick, 24, is in his second season in the NFL and with the Texans. He has played in all seven games and started the first game of the season when Antonio Smith was suspended.
