Report: Antonio Garay Fined $15,000 for Hit on Tom Brady


Report: Antonio Garay Fined $15,000 for Hit on Tom Brady If there's a rule in the books commonly referred to as "The Brady Rule," then you probably shouldn't violate it while hitting Tom Brady.

Chargers defensive lineman Antonio Garay learned that the hard way, as he was fined $15,000 for his hit below Brady's knees on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Garay dove at Brady as the quarterback was throwing a pass on Sunday. Brady went down awkwardly, and Patriots fans who watched a similar hit end the quarterback's season in 2008 held their collective breath. Brady turned out to be OK, and he thanked his knee brace for it.

"I'm glad I had a knee brace on," Brady said on WEEI the following day. "Those are scary, man, when you've been through those ones before. He got me in a good spot and I'm glad the knee brace took the brunt of the force. Why I never wore a knee brace before, I have no idea, and why every quarterback doesn't wear one on their left knee I have no idea. It's just so unprotected."
