Kareem Jackson fined twice by the NFL

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

It has been a rough 24 hours for Houston Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson.

On Wednesday he learned he had been fined $5250 for a uniform violation in the Texans loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

On Thursday Jackson was fined $21,000 for his hit on Vikings receiver Jarius Wright in the fourth quarter.

Jackson was not penalized for the play.

However, the NFL told him he was fined "for unnecessary roughness, a hit to the head and neck area of a defenseless player."

Jackson's agent, Tony Fleming, said "Jackson couldn't believe it, felt like it was a clean hit."

Fleming said he is appealing both fines.

Jackson's uniform violation was for "wearing his stockings too high."

"I wear my socks the same every week," Jackson said. "The uniform stuff is getting out of hand.

"I can't do nothing but appeal it. I guess we just got to get them to come dress us."
