The NFL recently informed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in letter form that he would be fined for using abusive language towards an opponent, however they did not specify exactly what he had said.

Racial slur

The opponent in question was Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston who has now stated that he was verbally abused by a racial slur sent his way from the 49ers signal caller.

Houston has proclaimed that during the week two contest between Chicago and San Francisco, Kaepernick proceeded to address Houston with the 'N-word', Kaepernick however completely denies the accusation.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune first reported Houston's statement over what had actually been said by 49ers player who had subsequently been fined by the NFL for abusive language.

There is a cloudy element to Houston's proclamation, after the game two contest there was no indication of an alleged racial slur but the news was only brought to attention by Houston after Monday night.

Possible audio recording

It seems as though the only way to find the full details over what was really said is through an available audio tape.

Michael Crabtree a wide receiver for the 49ers was wearing a microphone during the game with the Bears and was just close enough to his quarterback at the time of the incident to hopefully capture the true events of the story.

The league itself is currently dealing with an incredible amount of drama after a tumultuous few weeks for the NFL, any extra pressure from inside the organisation is unneeded at this time, so quick action will surely be taken to resolve this issue.

Kaepernick has already been fined by the league and it is likely that will be the full penalty of his actions unless further details are brought to light.
