According to WLWT in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin has been notified he will be fined $25k for his hit on Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber:
Multiple sources confirm to WLWT’s Artrell Hawkins that Pittsburgh linebacker Terence Garvin has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for Sunday’s hit on Kevin Huber.
Huber’s family confirmed to WLWT that Huber also has a broken vertebra. However, it is unclear if that was from Sunday’s hit. Huber will wear a protective collar for a week to treat the broken vertebra.
While addressing the media for the first time since Sunday night, Huber said he had no ill feelings towards Garvin:
“There really is not much I can do about it now,” Huber said. “Me just getting mad and stressing about it is only going to make it harder to get through. It is what it is. It’s part of the game, I know — big hits. Unfortunately I got one of the big hits, and I’ve got to deal with it. I’ll be fine, I’ll be back next year.”
