Benardrick McKinney fined for hitting Jimmy Garoppolo, will appeal

Benardrick McKinney has been fined for a roughing the passer penalty on Jimmy Garoppolo in Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

The Texans inside linebacker told reporters of his fine during Thursday’s practice session.

This is the play in question. He was penalized for this hit early in the third quarter,

The drive eventually ended in a Robbie Gould field goal to push the 49ers lead to 13-9, answering the Texans’ touchdown drive behind T.J. Yates to open the second half.

McKinney will appeal the fine, and the decision on the appeal will be made on Friday by the league.
