Pryor and Guyton each fined $7,500 for hitting Favre

Defensive tackle Myron Pryor has been docked $7,500 for his hit that cut the Minnesota quarterback’s chin. Favre left the Vikings’ loss midway through the fourth quarter Sunday and needed 10 stitches in his chin. Pryor was not penalized on the play, in which his helmet got under Favre’s facemask and cut Favre’s chin. Patriots linebacker Gary Guyton was fined $7,500 for roughing the passer when he unnecessarily struck Favre in the head and neck area earlier in the game. The league has cracked down on illegal hits and has promised suspensions for hits to the head or neck area of defenseless players. Props to satsunada for the early lead.
