Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was fined $8,268 for taunting on Aug. 28. Manning got in Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger's face after the former converted on a 29-yard touchdown pass to Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders in the second quarter of their preseason game on Aug. 23.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been fined for taunting. 

According to an Aug. 28 ESPN update, Manning was docked $8,268 in pay for "getting in the face" of Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger during their Aug. 23 preseason game:

"The NFL has fined Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning $8,268 for taunting, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Thursday. 

"Manning was fined for his actions in last Saturday's preseason game against the Houston Texans, getting in the face of Houston safety D.J Swearinger, following a 29-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders in the second quarter. Earlier, Swearinger's blow to the helmet of Broncos receiver Wes Welker resulted in a concussion for Welker. 

"'I accept the fine. It's money well spent,' Manning told Mortensen. 

"It was the first time in Manning's career that he has been flagged for taunting. A look at his preseason and regular-season career penalty totals reveals Manning had not been flagged for any sort of unsportsmanlike conduct before the taunting penalty. 

"'Fifteen yards with five seconds left in the half doesn't hurt you that much,' Manning said following the game. 'I think you're going to get one that's a good time to get one.' 

"The Broncos recently ran tests on Welker and don't believe his concussion is as serious as the two he suffered last season, but he remains sidelined under the league's concussion protocol.'

"It's the third time Welker has been under the guidelines of the league's concussion protocol since Nov 17. 

"After the game, Swearinger said he was surprised his hit resulted in a penalty, but that he tried to make the play cleanly."

Manning gave Swearinger a piece of his mind because of the hit on Welker, per The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck: 

"On the next play, Manning completed a 29-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders. As is his fashion, Manning jogged toward the end zone. He didn't greet Sanders, but rather confronted Swearinger, yelling an expletive, according to the Texans defensive back. Manning said he reacted because of his concern for Welker, and didn't deny using profanity. 

"The replay was shown on the Jumbotron at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, drawing arguably the loudest cheers of the evening. Teammates celebrated the gesture. 

"'You love to see that passion from your leader,' offensive guard Louis Vasquez said. 

"Added defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson, 'No. 36 was (talking) all week. That's something he brought on himself.'

"The news was first reported by ESPN, with Chris Mortensen quoting Manning as saying Thursday: 'I accept the fine. It's money well spent.' 

"A decision on whether Swearinger will be fined is expected to be announced Friday. 

"Welker traveled with the Broncos to Dallas, meaning he has reached the phase where he can exercise and perform light workouts. He has not been cleared to participate in a game and was not scheduled to play Thursday. 

 

"The NFL says it does not track fines by players, but this is believed to be the first time Manning has been fined by the league." 

The 38-year-old Manning has thrown for 64,964 yards, 491 touchdowns and 219 interceptions on a 97.2 passer rating in 240 regular-season games, per ESPN stats
