Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston confirmed that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick used the N-word to address him during Chicago’s Week 2 win over San Francisco.
“He was just saying inappropriate language,” Houston told Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. He said Kaepernick cursed at him, including using the N-word.
Asked if he was insulted, Houston said it’s more a “cultural thing.” Houston reiterated that he incensed Kaepernick on the play by saying “nice pass” at the end of a Kyle Fuller interception.
Kaepernick was fined $11,025 by the NFL but denies saying anything “racially derogatory.”
