The NFL’s letter informing 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick that he’s been fined for using abusive language doesn’t specific what he said.
Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston now says that Kaepernick used the “N” word. Kaepernick contends he didn’t.
Via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Houston said Monday night that he heard Kaepernick utter the slur. After the Week Two game, however, Houston had said he heard nothing.
Ultimately, the available audio tape may resolve this one. Especially since receiver Michael Crabtree wore a microphone during the game and seemed to be close enough to Kaepernick to pick up whatever he said.
Maybe Kaepernick simply said, “Bobby, give me my money.”
