Urlacher fined again for horse-collar tackle

(MCT) — CHICAGO — Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune the NFL fined him $21,000 for his horse-collar tackle on running back Leon Washington during Sunday’s overtime loss to the Seahawks.

It was the second consecutive week Urlacher was fined for such a tackle. He received a $15,750 fine for one against Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

A player typically is fined $31,500 for a second offense, but Urlacher said he wasn’t docked that amount. He received a letter from the NFL on Wednesday.

Urlacher already has appealed the horse-collar tackle against Peterson and plans to protest the latest fine.

“For sure,” Urlacher said Thursday. “My last appeal went real good.”

Urlacher suffered a Grade 2 right hamstring strain against the Seahawks and could miss the rest of the regular season with the injury. He already has been ruled out of Sunday’s matchup with the Vikings.
