Fournette’s 1-game suspension upheld, will miss Colts game
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette's appeal of a one-game suspension for fighting has been denied, meaning he will sit out Sunday's game against Indianapolis.
Fournette was suspended without pay for leaving the sideline, running across the field and punching Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson. Fournette appealed, but retired NFL receiver James Thrash affirmed the one-game punishment that will cost Fournette close to $100,000.
