Detroit’s Suh wins appeal, to play against Dallas


NEW YORK: Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh won his appeal on Tuesday of a one-game suspension by the National Football League and will compete in Sunday’s first-round playoff game at Dallas. League appeals officer Ted Cottrell overturned the one-game ban imposed on Monday by NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks, instead imposing a $70,000 fine upon the Detroit defender. Suh was punished after stepping twice on the injured leg of Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a victory by the Packers over the Lions on Sunday at Green Bay.
