The dangerous blocked that Brett Favre made against Eugene Wilson, Houston Texans defensive, in Week 3 of the preseason, has cost the veteran quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings a fine of $ 10,000 imposed by the NFL.
Favre, who did not see action in the final exhibition game against the Dallas Cowboys last Friday, playing just his second game with the Vikings since he signed last Aug. 18.
It was filed in mourning Monday evening, Aug. 31, when the veteran 39-year-old wide receiver was placed in a variant of the training "Wildcat". Rookie receiver Percy Harvin was placed behind the center and received the ball and started running.
Favre was then bent over to get in the way of Wilson, free safety, and blocked it at the height of the legs, which is known as a "crack-back" block ", which is punishable as a personal foul and 15 yards to be considered very dangerous, threatening the physical integrity of the players.
Wilson injured his left knee after the game and his agent said they were awaiting an apology from Favre, which never came.
Favre said only that he had no intention of causing injury to make that blocked.
