NEW YORK, April 29 (UPI) -- Chicago Fire forward Nate Jaqua was suspended two games and fined $750 by Major League Soccer on Thursday for violent conduct.

Jaqua was disciplined for a foul on defender Mike Petke in the 20th minute of a game last Saturday. Both players were involved in an off-the-ball confrontation when Jaqua's elbow made contact with Petke's head.

He received a yellow card from referee Ricardo Valenzuela.

A two-year veteran, Jaqua will miss games against the MetroStars on Saturday and the Kansas City Wizards on May 8.
