Kaepernick stands firm that he didn’t “say anything” improper or use any slurs before being called out for a penalty late in last Sunday’s game against Chicago.

The penalty flag was thrown just after Kaepernick chucked his second interception of Sunday’s game. Ending the evening with a total of three interceptions (two of them going to Chicago’s rookie cornerback, Kyle Fuller), the quarterback admitted to a terrible performance, but denied that any foul or inappropriate language came out of his mouth.
