Antonio Smith fined $21,000, Incognito not

Texans defensive end Antonio Smith called Dolphins guard Richie Incognito dirty because, in part, Incognito twisted his ankle. Incognito called Smith dirty because, as Incognito explains it, he was merely keeping Smith from recovering a loose ball -- and Smith decided to kick Richie repeatedly in the head.

The league agrees with Incognito.

Smith said he has been fined $21,000, according to the Associated Press.

Of course, it’s possible that the league decided they’re both going to hell. Incognito tells PFT via Twitter direct message (what a world we live in) that he has not been fined.

Regardless of what happens with Incognito, Smith is lucky he wasn’t suspended. Those kicks to Incognito’s head area looked worse than the Ndamukong Suh pro wrestling arm stomp.

UPDATE 3:44 p.m. ET: The league office has confirmed that Incognito was not fined.
