For a hit that will leave a scar on the chin of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, New England Patriots defensive lineman Myron Pryor has been fined $7,500.
Pryor's helmet hit Favre on the chin in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game, sending Favre off on a cart to get stitched up and knocking him out of the game. Pryor was not penalized on the play and told the Boston Herald his helmet "slid up into Favre's chin" after he hit Favre in the chest. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the fine.
"You don't mean to hurt somebody. And when it happened, I didn't think I hit him hard enough to make him [injured]. But maybe just from the impact going to the ground and from me laying on top of him, that's what made the chin messed up."
