PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh linebacker Terence Garvin has been fined $25,000 for his hit on Cincinnati punter Kevin Huber in the Steelers' victory over the Bengals on Sunday night.

Huber sustained a broken jaw and a cracked vertebrae when Garvin decked him near midfield during Antonio Brown's 67-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Garvin was not penalized on the play. Huber lay still on the field for several minutes before walking off under his own power. He was scheduled to have surgery on his jaw Friday and is out for the year.

Garvin said Wednesday the play happened very quickly and didn't have time to think about it before hitting Huber just below the chin. Garvin added he plans to speak with Huber at some point and is hoping for Huber's eventual return.
