Suh will appeal the fine, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday, per a source who has been in touch with the defensive tackle.
The $100,000 fine is the largest financial penalty (not counting lost suspension money) for an on-field violation in NFL history.
Suh was flagged for a personal foul Sunday after he blindsided Vikings center John Sullivan with a hit to the knees. Sullivan, who underwent microfracture knee surgery in the offseason, avoided serious injury on the play, but he said Monday there needs to be "consequences when guys don't respect the careers of other players."
Accusations of dirty play have followed Suh his entire career. He's been fined five times in his first three seasons, mostly for illegal hits on quarterbacks. His most infamous play came on Thanksgiving in 2011, when he was fined and suspended for stomping Green Bay Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith.
The dollar amount of his latest fine is a clear indication that the league has run out of patience with Suh. Further misbehavior almost certainly will lead to another ban.
