Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays apologized for his vicious hit on Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on Sunday, but the NFL didn’t think that was enough as the league slapped Mays with a fine and suspension Tuesday.

Mays drew a roughing-the-passer penalty for his third-quarter hit on Schaub, who lost part of his earlobe when his helmet flew off in a 31-25 win Sunday.

Shockingly Schaub missed only one play on the hit, due to the NFL’s rule that a player who loses their helmet must exit the field for at least one play.

Mays is a fifth-year player from North Dakota State who has started all three games for the Broncos this season. Last week he was suspended $7,875 for a roughing the passer penalty on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Mays said he will appeal the suspension.
