Darryl Sharpton fined for horse-collar tackle vs. Seahawks

Linebacker Darryl Sharpton was fined by the NFL for a horse-collar tackle during an overtime home loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said.

Sharpton was penalized during Seattle’s first OT possession, after tackling Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch following a 13-yard pass from quarterback Russell Wilson.

“Usually if you get an unnecessary roughness play, there’s like an immediate fine that you have to appeal, unless they think it’s a missed call,” Kubiak said.
The Texans are still waiting to hear whether cornerback Kareem Jackson will be fined for an unnecessary roughness penalty in overtime that set up Seattle’s game-winning field goal.

“I don’t know what that means yet. We usually hear from (the NFL) pretty quick, so we will see,” Kubiak said. “But we put in our submission of questions and all that.”
