Brian Robison Fined $20,000 For Groin Kick

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison is a little lighter in the pocketbook after kicking Green Bay Packers lineman T.J. Lang in the groin on Sunday. During a scrum following a field goal attempt, Robison was caught on tape kicking Lang in the groin. Robison was flagged for the incident, and was hit with a $20,000 fine on Tuesday after the league reviewed the incident.

It appears the incident is water under the bridge for the two men involved. Robison explained himself and apologized, saying he was in the heat of the moment at the time.

Lang replied on Twitter that he accepted Robison's apology and did not consider him a dirty player.

Robison says he got caught up in the heat of the moment when he kicked Lang, who had dumped him on to his back during Mason Crosby's field goal attempt. Robison says he regrets it and will make sure it doesn't happen again.

Video of the incident can be found here.

VIDEO: Brian Robison Kicks T.J. Lang In The Groin

The Green Bay Packers were trailing the Minnesota Vikings 14-7, driving down the football field. The Packers drive wound up stalling out and the Packers had to kick a field goal. It was good, cutting the Vikings lead to 14-10, but after the field goal there was some extra curricular activity.

Vikings defensive end Brian Robison kicked Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang square in the groin. It was like a mixed martial arts up kick, but this is football not the UFC. Robison was flagged for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and no doubt will be fined by the league later this week. To Lang's credit, he fought the urge to retaliate and draw an off setting penalty for the Packers.
