Houston (CBS Houston)- Wednesday morning Houston Texans safety Kareem Jackson was fined $42,000 by the NFL for his hit on Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright.

“It’s outrageous,” said Jackson, Wednesday afternoon. “I’ll never understand a $42,000 fine for a hit. The guy got up, he was ok, so I’ll never understand that regardless of the situation or hit.”

Jackson continued saying, ” there is not much I can do about it, but appeal it.”

When asked if he would play the exact same way as he did last Sunday, which became costly as the Titans scored a touchdown on their next play, he said, “I would.”

“I’m a defensive player, that’s our job,” Jackson continued. “We’re suppose to be physical and try to knock the ball loose from the guy when they catch it. That’s what we get paid to do and now you’re trying to tell me you’re going to take my money for doing that. I’m not trying to be a dirty player, that’s just how I play the game.”

It wasn’t all about the fine as the cornerback was asked why he didn’t buy any of his teammates an Alabama shirt after his alma mater defeated Texas A&M this weekend, Jackson simply smiled and said, “I’ve got to save my money now.”
