WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUND-UP: Matthews fined by NFL
GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers’ linebacker Clay Matthews has been fined $15,000 for a late hit on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, in last week’s 34-28 loss.
The hit occurred with over nine minutes to go in the first half, leading to a botched third down call by the referees. Matthews says he is not worried about the fine and is focused on Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, saying “I’m an awesome player, not a dirty player.”
