A $5,000 fine levied against Vikings tackle Artis Hicks will not help Rams defensive tackle Gary Gibson recover from a broken ankle.

Gibson, placed on injured reserve this week, fell awkwardly after Hicks shoved him.

Sean Jensen of twincities.com has the details, including this quote from Hicks: "I don't go out there thinking I'm going to hurt anyone. But, people get hurt. It's a part of this game. It's unfortunate."
