Texans’ Jalen Pitre fined for hit on Colts’ Alec Pierce

Houston Texans safety Jalen Pitre was fined for unnecessary roughness on a tackle he placed on Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce during the Week 1 tie at NRG Stadium.

As Pierce was going across the middle for a catch, Pitre laid a hard hit on the rookie wideout. Pierce wound up suffering a concussion from the hit which led to him being ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The fine for the hit came out to be $9,045, per Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star.
