Detroit Lions star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has lost his appeal of a $100,000 fine, which was upheld by the NFL.

Suh's agent, Roosevelt Barnes, told the Associated Press the arbitrator has made his decision, which brings Suh's total fines to six for $342,794 in lost wages.

Suh drew the fine for an illegal block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan during the first game of the season.

“My play speaks for itself,” Suh said once he was fined. “I don’t change. I’m going to always play tough, hard. That’s the way I was brought up at Nebraska, where I really learned football from the (Bo) Pelinis and that staff, and I’m going to continue to play hard, play blue-collar football."
