According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com,  49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks recently won his appeal after being fined for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

 Outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks was recently informed he won his appeal of the $15,750 fine for his hit last month on New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Brooks told CSNBayArea.com on Friday.

This is surprising since the NFL had made it clear that they won’t tolerate hits to the head and neck area of quarterbacks.
