HOUSTON -- The NFL said Friday that it had fined Texans safety Eugene Wilson $5,000 for hitting defenseless Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark during last weekend's game.

Wilson was penalized for unnecessary roughness for the hit, which came during the second quarter with the Colts leading 13-0. Indianapolis won the game 20-17.

Clark caught six passes in the first eight minutes of the game and wound up with 119 yards on 14 receptions, one catch shy of tying Kellen Winslow and Jason Witten for the NFL single-game record for tight ends.

Wilson's infraction was part of the Texans' season-high 103 yards in penalties.

OK, fine. Where's the penalty for the guy who smacked Schaub in the head?

I would've prefered a flag on the play personally, but ya, exactly what I was wondering.

I am surprised the NFL didn't make Wilson apologize to poor Dallas for not giving him the opportunity to take a knee or fall down before trucking him. But whatever, the Colts will be on the receiving end of bad calls tomorrow against Belicheat and the New Cheatland Cheatriots, who btw are cheaters.

I didn't realize Clark ever got hit, I only saw him catch the ball and go straight to the ground like a wuss. :kingkong:

Yup, I thought it was a bullcrap call and this is a bullcrap fine. Luckily he can afford it. I don't care about the limitations on TD dances so much but this kind of thing is what makes the NFL the No Fun League IMO. That was a good defensive play that shouldn't have been flagged or fined. OD has taken 50 hits worse than that.

I guess the $5k fine is on the low end of the spectrum. I hate the unprotected receiver call. That makes no sense to me because how else are you supposed to dislodge the ball from a receiver trying to catch it? In a few years the NFL is going to become a flag football league...
