Pryor fined for hit on Favre

Former Wildcat Myron Pryor has been fined $7,500 for his fourth-quarter hit that opened a cut on the chin of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.

Pryor was not penalized on the play, which resulted in Favre getting 10 stitches and leaving the game.

The New England defensive end told the Boston Herald earlier this week that his helmet "slid up into Favre's chin" after he first hit the quarterback in the chest.

"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," Pryor said.
