Getting fined for a tackle last Sunday is not fine with Brian Urlacher.
The Chicago Bears linebacker will appeal an NFL fine resulting from a stop on Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Urlacher brought down Peterson near the sideline in the fourth quarter with a horse-collar tackle that drew a 15-yard penalty in the Bears' 28-10 win.
"Oh yes, for sure, appealing," Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune.
ESPNChicago.com reported the amount of the fine to be $15,750.
In the same game, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen delivered a hit on Bears guard Lance Louis that received a $21,000 league fine. Louis suffered a season-ending knee injury.
