FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — A person familiar with the decision says the NFL has fined New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady $10,000 for kicking Baltimore Ravens defender Ed Reed during Sunday's AFC championship game.

The fine was first announced on NFL.com. An official with knowledge of the penalty confirmed it to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because it had not been announced.

On a first-and-goal near the end of the second quarter, Brady was forced out of the pocket to his left. He ran for 3 yards but slid before he could be tackled. In the process, he raised his right leg and kicked Reed in the thigh.

Brady reportedly apologized to Reed in a text message.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James says he has no information on the fine. A message was left seeking comment from NFL spokesman Michael Signora.

The Ravens won 28-13 to advance to the Super Bowl.
