DETROIT — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has lost an appeal of the $100,000 fine against him for his hit on a Minnesota Vikings player.
Suh’s agent, Roosevelt Barnes, tells The Associated Press he was notified today of the arbitrator’s decision.
The six-figure fine was the largest in league history for on-field conduct, not including money lost by players due to suspensions.
Suh apologized to the player, Vikings center John Sullivan, and to teammates for negating an interception return for a touchdown in Detroit’s season-opening win.
Suh has been fined six times and suspended for two games for a total of $342,794.
