DETROIT, Mich. — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will play in the team’s wild card game against the Dallas Cowboys.

According to FOX 2, an arbitrator ruled Tuesday that Suh’s penalty for stepping on Aaron Rodgers’ leg should be reduced from a one-game suspension to a $70,000 fine.

He was initially suspended by the NFL after stepping on Rodgers’ calf and ankle during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

The Lions will face off against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Jan. 4 on FOX 17.   Coverage begins at 3:30 p.m.
