Starter Pack: No word on fine for Matthews

By Rob Demovsky

A roundup of what’s happening on the Green Bay Packers beat.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The NFL planned to review the hit Packers linebacker Clay Matthews put on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick during Sunday’s game, but the league made no announcement about any fine or disciplinary action on Tuesday.

Perhaps they were too busy dealing with Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who was fined a whopping $100,000 for his hit on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan on Sunday.

If Matthews is fined, which is likely, don’t expect it to be anywhere in the neighborhood of Suh’s penalty. Matthews doesn’t have a history of disciplinary problems like Suh does.

The NFL typically announces fines on Friday, but Matthews likely would have received notice of a fine by now.
