Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh appeals fine



Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says he isn’t going to change what he does on the field.

And he’s appealing his latest fine, too.

Suh was fined $100,000 for an illegal block on a Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan in the Detroit Lions’ season-opening win last weekend.

The hefty fine is believed to be the NFL’s biggest monetary fine for on-field conduct, not including the dollars lost by players due to suspensions.

“It’s going through the appeals process,” Suh said Wednesday.

Suh’s agent, Roosevelt Barnes, said he expects the appeal to be heard later this week.

FALCONS: As breakups go, the one between the St. Louis Rams and running back Steven Jackson went about as smooth as can be expected, especially after nine years together.

That’s why Jackson, who signed a three-year, $12 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons on March 15, offered nothing but kind words and fond memories of his time in St. Louis when discussing his former team Wednesday morning ahead of the teams’ Week 2 matchup.

Likewise, Jackson doesn’t plan to have any extra motivation entering Sunday’s game against his former team aside from the usual desired outcome.

“I mean, I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to get the win,” Jackson said. “Of course I want to get the win, but I have to come out there and just remain in the zone, in my focus and not get too up.


BRONCOS: Suspended All-Pro linebacker Von Miller is in trouble with the law for the second time in a month.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said the troubled Denver star was cited last week for driving without a license and speeding near his home.


REDSKINS: Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the NFL should pay attention to those offended by the team’s nickname.

“If we are offending one person, we need to be listening,” Goodell said Wednesday in an interview with 106.7 The Fan.

It was a subtle change in position for Goodell, who had more strongly supported the nickname in his previous statements this year.
