Lions’ Suh Loses Appeal of $100,000 Fine Levied by NFL, AP SaysNancy Kercheval
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh lost his appeal of a $100,000 fine, tied for the largest ever levied by the National Football League for on-field conduct, the Associated Press said, citing his agent.
Suh, 26, was fined Sept. 10, two days after making an illegal block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan. An appeal officer’s decision to uphold the fine was confirmed yesterday by Roosevelt Barnes, Suh’s agent, AP reported.
The $100,000 fine, the sixth in Suh’s four-year career, was matched by a similar fine given Sept. 18 to Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson.
Suh also has been suspended for two games during his NFL career.
