NEW YORK (AP) - San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks has been fined $15,570 by the NFL for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday.

That is the standard amount for such hits to the head and neck area.

Brooks leveled Drew Brees, forcing a lost fumble. But the penalty kept the ball in the Saints' possession, and they soon kicked two field goals to win 23-20. The tackle left Brees with blood on his chin.

Brooks vehemently argued against the penalty, saying he didn't use his hands or helmet and called it a ''bear hug.'' Brees labeled the hit a clothesline tackle.

The linebacker was fined $12,750 for a roughing-the-passer call against Aaron Rodgers during the season opener against Green Bay.
