It’s his word against the NFL’s — literally.

Colin Kaepernick has filed an appeal against the NFL after he was fined $11,000 for saying the N-word during the 49ers week two game against the Chicago Bears.

According to the Huffington Post, the player Colin allegedly made the comment to, LaMarr Houston, says he didn’t hear the racial slur.

Referees told Fox’s Jay Glazer that Kaepernick said the n-word during a skirmish with the Chicago Bears’ LaMarr Houston. Kaepernick denied any wrongdoing.

“It will be appealed,” he said, per the Associated Press. “I didn’t say anything. The player that I supposedly said something to has been quoted saying that I didn’t say anything, and I don’t know him, so it’s not like he would have a reason to just randomly stick up for me.”

49ners coach Jim Harbaugh has also stood by his player saying:

“Colin says he didn’t say anything, this person says what they say and somebody else heard something else,” Harbaugh said. “I don’t have a stance. You can only imagine. I don’t have a stance because I don’t know, I didn’t hear it. Colin’s always been truthful 100 percent of the time.”

Since the beginning of the this year, the NFL has considered a penalty for players who use the slur. The punishment will include a 15-yard penalty and a fine if it’s finalized.

Check out the video of the incident below.

If you’re good a reading lips, you’ll see that Colin says “back the f*** up,” but it looks like the player will take that up with the league in court.
