DETROIT, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said Wednesday he has filed an appeal against a $100,000 fine assessed him for a low hit in last week's game.

Suh was slapped with the penalty for an incident in Sunday's season-opening victory over Minnesota, in which the often controversial player blocked Vikings center John Sullivan on the knees during an interception return.

Suh was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the play, which angered Vikings head Coach Leslie Frazier.

"It's going through the appeals process and we'll go from there," Suh told reporters, adding that he spoke to Sullivan Sunday as the teams headed to the locker rooms at halftime.

Suh, who has been fined numerous times in his career, was suspended in 2011 for stomping on the arm of Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith. He was fined $30,000 in 2012 for kicking Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin.
