Jevon Kearse won’t be fined for not hanging around for Sunday night’s 31-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts after being declared a healthy scratch. Fisher confirmed that Kearse did not stay for the game, as inactive players usually do on game day, and the coach said the matter was between he and the defensive end. “This is between he and I. It was a big game. It was an emotional thing, and we’ll sort it out,” Fisher said. “As far as the message is concerned, he’s a good teammate, he’s had a great career and he’s still got a lot left. “He won’t be fined for that. Again, that’s between he and I.” Fisher was never clear as to whether game-day inactives are required to stay around for home games or if Kearse violated a team rule by doing so. But inactive players almost always are accounted for on the sideline.
