Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher thought it was bull on Sunday, and he got the horns on Thursday.

Urlacher told Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune he was fined $15,750 for a horse-collar tackle on Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

He was penalized on the field for the fourth-quarter hit, and he shook his head and said “that’s bull” while watching the replay.

“Oh yes, for sure appealing,” Urlacher said, mentioning he won an appeal before, getting a 2005 fine overturned after he hit then-Colts tight end Dallas Clark.
