RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle defensive end Red Bryant lost his cool. Now he's about to lose "a pretty penny."

Bryant said Wednesday that he was fined for head-butting Cleveland tight end Alex Smith in the final minute of last Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Browns. Bryant was flagged for a personal foul and ejected from the game.

Bryant would not disclose how much he was fined, other than to say it was a "costly mistake." He said he planned to appeal.

The personal foul overshadowed one of Bryant's finest games as a pro. He finished with four tackles, shared in a sack of Browns QB Colt McCoy and blocked two field goal attempts.

The NFL also fined Pittsburgh Steelers guard Chris Kemoeatu for two separate penalties in Sunday's win over Arizona, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Kemoeatu told the paper he was fined $15,000 for a lte hit and a $10,000 for a hands-to-the-face penalty.
