DETROIT (USA Today) — Reprieve granted.

Ndamukong Suh won his appeal of a one-game suspension Tuesday and will play in the Detroit Lions’ wild-card game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Independent arbitrator Ted Cottrell made the decision to repeal Suh’s suspension and instead fine him $70,000 for stepping on the leg of quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a 30-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers last week.

The NFL suspended Suh, who traveled to New York for the hearing, on Monday for what it termed “a non-football act” that placed Rodgers “at unnecessary risk of injury.”

Suh took two backwards steps onto Rodgers’injured left leg after knocking him to the ground on a fourth-quarter pass attempt. NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks said in a letter to Suh explaining the punishment that his second step and subsequent push off Rodgers’ leg “clearly could have been avoided.”
