Letroy Guion Fined For Late Hit On Blaine Gabbert

Minnesota Vikings tackle Letroy Guion was fined $7,875 for his late hit on Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert, reports Tom Pelissero from ESPN. More on the hit after the jump.

Given the size of some of the fines handed out to players like the Pittsburgh Steelers' James Harrison or the Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh, the league must not have judged Guion's shot on Gabbert as too severe. The hit came early in the fourth quarter, with Jacksonville down 17-12. It helped extend a drive that resulted in a Jacksonville field goal. Guion is in his fifth year in the league and his first as Minnesota's starting nose tackle.
