Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch had his appeal of a three-game suspension levied back in April upheld by the NFL on Monday. Commissioner Roger Goodell, who confirmed the suspension being upheld through a league spokesperson, dealt Lynch the ban without pay for violating the league’s personal conduct policy stemming from a weapons charge on February 11.
Lynch was arrested in California on weapons charges and in March pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of carrying a gun in his vehicle. Two other charges were dropped and Lynch was sentenced to three years’ probation along with 80 hours of community service. It was the second incident involving Lynch and the law in less than a year, as he was behind the wheel of a vehicle that struck a woman in downtown Buffalo last May 31 in a hit-and-run case. The suspension lasts from September 5-28 and will cover the first three games of Buffalo’s 2009 regular season — including at New England, the home opener versus Tampa Bay and a home date with New Orleans.
