Red Bryant fined by NFL for head-butt
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.
Kemoeatu told the paper he was fined $15,000 for a lte hit and a $10,000 for a hands-to-the-face penalty.
