The NFL has fined 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for “direct[ing] abusive language toward your opponent.” Kaepernick has appealed. Beyond that, not much is known.
The incident happened after the conclusion of a play in the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s game against the Bears. It drew both a flag and, as of Tuesday, a fine in the amount of $11,025.
While Kaepernick has maintained that he said nothing offensive or profane, he is accused of using abusive language. It’s unclear what that includes, especially since (per a source with knowledge of the situation) the letter informing Kaepernick of the fine doesn’t say what he supposedly said.
