Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, citing an unidentified National Football
League referee, said Kaepernick slung the "N-word" at Chicago Bears'
defender Lamarr Houston as the two exchanged insults after a play in
the Sept. 14 game. Houston is black and Kaepernick is biracial.
Kaepernick has denied using inappropriate language and said he would
appeal the fine.
In the locker room after the game, Houston told the Chicago Tribune
he did not recall an insult hurled by Kaepernick.
"I didn't hear anything," he said.
