Packers LB Clay Matthews Fined $15,000
According to the NFL, Matthews was fined "for striking an opponent late."
Matthews drew a personal-foul penalty in the 49ers' 34-28 win Sunday after he tackled Kaepernick out of bounds deep in Green Bay territory during the second quarter.
A fracas between players from both teams followed on the sideline when Matthews and 49ers left tackle Joe Staley began pushing and shoving.
Staley received an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty. That offset the late-hit call against Matthews, resulting in a replay of third down at the Packers' 10-yard line.
Kaepernick then connected with Anquan Boldin for a 10-yard touchdown pass to put the 49ers ahead 14-7.
The announcement of the fine came Friday afternoon after the Packers completed their post-practice obligations with the media.
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.
