DENVER — Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was fined $8,268 for taunting the Houston Texans’ D.J. Swearinger during Saturday’s preseason game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported.

After throwing a touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, Manning ran downfield and got in the face of Swearinger and the two exchanged words.

Earlier, Swearinger delivered a hit on the Broncos’ Wes Welker that resulted in a third concussion for the receiver.

Manning was penalized on the play and will not appeal the fine.

“I accept the fine. It’s money well spent,” Manning told Mortensen.
