ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM’-uh-kehn soo) says he is appealing the NFL’s $100,000 fine against him for his hit on a Vikings player over the weekend.

Suh spoke Wednesday, a day after the league slapped him with the what is believed to be the biggest monetary fine for on-field conduct, not including suspensions.

Suh says he knows the NFL is concerned about player safety and that’s one of the reasons he apologized to Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan at halftime of Sunday’s game after hitting him low during an interception return.

He insists not being concerned about how his reputation, saying you’re never going to change people, including himself.

Suh says he plans to play “hard, blue-collar football” Sunday on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.
