Clay Matthews fined $15,000 for Kaepernick hit

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was fined $15,000 for his late hit on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, according to a report from NFL.com.

Matthews was flagged on the play, which saw Matthews lunge at Kaepernick, with the quarterback trotting out of bounds on the play.

Earlier this week Matthews wouldn't reveal to reporters if he was fined or not but said he's an awesome player, not a dirty player.

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh called the play a cheap shot.
