NEW YORK — Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was suspended for one game without pay by the NFL on Friday for shoving a game official during the Raiders’ victory over Kansas City on Thursday night.

Lynch was ejected from the game after he shoved line judge Julian Mapp.

The scuffle started when Oakland quarterback Derek Carr was hit late on a run by Kansas City’s Marcus Peters midway through the second quarter. Raiders offensive linemen Kelechi Osemele and Donald Penn immediately confronted Peters, and Lynch sprinted onto the field from the bench to join the fray. Mapp tried to break up the fight, but Lynch pushed him and grabbed his jersey. Lynch also got a personal foul.

The Raiders rallied to win 31-30 on a touchdown pass by Carr on the final play.

NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan wrote a letter to Lynch, saying:

“You made deliberate physical contact with one of our game officials as he was diffusing an active confrontation between players. You were disqualified for your inappropriate and unsportsmanlike actions. Your conduct included pushing the game official and grabbing his jersey. … You were not directly involved in the active confrontation that the game official was attempting to diffuse, nor were you a participant in the play that initiated the confrontation. You were the only player from either team who ran from the sideline to midfield to insert himself into a situation in which he was not directly involved.”

Lynch will be eligible to return to Oakland’s active roster on Oct. 30, the day after the Raiders’ game against the Buffalo Bills.

FALCONS: After being limited by injuries in practice earlier in the week, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and defensive end Courtney Upshaw are expected to play Sunday against the Patriots.

Sanu missed last week’s loss to Miami because of a hamstring injury. Upshaw has missed three games because of ankle and knee injuries. Coach Dan Quinn says the two will have no limitations in Sunday night’s game.

Quinn said the only player who will be held out because of an injury is backup linebacker Jordan Tripp (concussion).

The return of Sanu, Atlanta’s No. 2 receiver behind Julio Jones, is important to an offense that has been held below 20 points in two straight losses.

FINES: Pittsburgh safety Mike Mitchell was fined $57,735 by the NFL for two hits he made in the Steelers’ win over Kansas City last Sunday.

Mitchell was docked $48,620 for a helmet-to-helmet shot to Chiefs running back Charcandrick West that resulted in a concussion. He also was fined $9,115 for hitting quarterback Alex Smith low.

Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree also received a $24,309 fine for roughing the passer on a hit he made on Smith.

Also in that game, Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell was docked $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct after he used the goal post as a prop during a touchdown celebration.

Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr was fined $9,115 for head-butting Green Bay’s Davante Adams, a move that drew a 15-yard penalty. But Barr wasn’t punished for his big hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was placed on injured reserve because of a broken right collarbone.

PACKERS: Green Bay placed Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve after the quarterback had surgery Thursday on his broken collarbone.

Rodgers is eligible to return after eight weeks. Coach Mike McCarthy said there’s no timeline for Rodgers’ return, and that the two-time NFL MVP might miss the rest of the season.

“Everything went very well, is my understanding talking with (team doctor Pat McKenzie), and he’s recovering,” McCarthy said of Rodgers’ surgery.

Safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) and outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (back) are also out for Sunday’s game against the Saints.
