A report from Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com revels the latest about two fines levied against Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews this season:
Matthews told ESPN.com on Thursday that the league reduced the $15,000 fine he received for hitting (Colin) Kaerpernick out of bounds in the season opener. That penalty started a fracas on the sideline. Matthews said the fine was cut to $7,500.
What’s more, Matthews said he also won the appeal on his fine from Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles, when he was originally docked $15,750 for his roughing the passer penalty against Nick Foles.
