The NFL has confirmed to FOX 11 that Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has been fined $15,000 for his hit on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Sunday.
A league source says the fine is a penalty for "striking an opponent late."
Matthews wasn't available for comment Friday, but had this to say Thursday before the fine came down: "Um, I'm not really going to discuss all that right now, but on to the next game.
When asked if Matthews thought of himself as a dirty player: "Next game!" he exclaimed with a smile, drawing laughs. "I'm an awesome player, not a dirty player."
Besides Matthews, the NFL fined Boldin $7,875 for a late hit on Packers cornerback Jarrett Bush in the third quarter of Sunday's game and fined 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks $12,750 for a roughing-the-passer call, the league said.
