Texans safety Danieal Manning is a little lighter in the pocketbook after a punch he threw in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Manning was fined $15,000 for punching Packers tackle Marshall Newhouse at the end of a play in the second half of the Texans 24-24 loss.

An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was called and cost the Texans 15 yards.

Manning said he apologized to Newhouse later in the game.
