Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith says he has received a $21,000 fine for kicking Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito in a Week 1 win.
Smith, who missed two practices this week with a sore right ankle, told reporters he was retaliating when Incognito tried to twist his ankle after a whistle.
Smith said he plans to appeal. He was also assessed $7,500 last year for yanking off Baltimore Ravens' guard Andre Gurode.
