NFL reaches final decision on Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch won’t be suiting up for the Oakland Raiders this week.

Lynch’s one-game suspension was upheld by the NFL on Tuesday, via multiple reports. He had appealed the one-game ban.

The Raiders running back is suspended physically contacting a referee as he was attempting to get his close friend Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters away from a skirmish between the two teams in Week 7. Lynch ran onto the field pushed off a referee and removed Peters from the altercation.

Appeals officer James Thrash made the final verdict.

The suspension means that Lynch will miss Oakland’s Week 8 tilt against the Buffalo Bills.

Lynch has 266 yards and 2 touchdowns in his first season with his hometown team.
