LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP)
Meriweather, a two-time Pro Bowl safety with New England, has been a disappointment since he agreed to a one-year deal with Chicago in September. He lost his starting job this week.
The NFL has fined Meriweather before for his hitting, including a $50,000 penalty for a helmet-on-helmet hit on Todd Heap last season.
The league confirmed Meriweather's latest fine on Friday.
The Bears host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night.
