Jacksonville Jaguars safety Dawan Landry was fined $21,000 for his hit on Garrett Graham in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville's loss to the Houston Texans, reports Ryan O'Halloran. The fine came for striking "a defenseless player in the head and neck area" and was Landry's second fine in two weeks.

Landry leveled Graham with a hit on a 19-yard strike from Matt Schaub, failing to break up the pass in the process. He was flagged for unnecessary roughness, and the drive ended in a Texans touchdown. Landry's previous fine came from a hit in the Week 10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, in which Landry drilled Andrew Luck in the head and neck area after Luck had started his slide. Landry sought out Luck for a handshake of an apology after the play, but that didn't save him from a $10,000 fine from the league.

Landry has 67 tackles so far this season, 52 of them solo. He also has one interception, coming in the game against Luck and the Colts.
