Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin laid a devastating block on Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber on Sunday Night Football, that paved the way for wide receiver Antonio Brown to take a punt back for a touchdown during the teams win.
Unfortunately for Garvin, the big hit that broke Huber’s jaw and a vertebra. will lead to a nice chunk of change coming from his bank account.
According to WLWT, Garvin has been fined $25,000 by the league for his big hit.
After Garvin’s hit, the league confirmed that he should have been penalized for the block but the referees overlooked the call. However, the league office was not as forgiving after reviewing the film.
Huber is set to undergo season-ending surgery on Friday to repair his broken jaw.
