ALAMEDA, Calif. — Running back Marshawn Lynch’s appeal of his one-game suspension for shoving an official was denied Tuesday and he’ll miss Oakland’s game Sunday at Buffalo.

James Thrash, the appeals officer who was appointed jointly by the league and the players’ union, upheld the one-game ban without pay.

Lynch won’t be allowed to be with the Raiders until Oct. 30.

Lynch was suspended for coming off the sideline during a scuffle in the second quarter, then shoving a game official Thursday night during Oakland’s 31-30 victory against Kansas City. The ban will cost him more than $100,000 in salary and per-game roster bonuses.

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

LIONS: Detroit released punter Jeff Locke.

Locke averaged 45.3 yards a punt for the Lions on 27 attempts this season. Sam Martin, the team’s regular punter, has been on the reserve/non-football injury list but was at practice Monday.

STEELERS: Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster said someone stole the bike he uses to commute from the team’s facility to his nearby apartment.

Smith-Schuster, 20, is working on getting his driver’s license and regularly bikes to and from work.

WASHINGTON: Coach Jay Gruden said there’s a chance injured right guard Brandon Scherff can play Sunday against Dallas.

Scherff sprained the MCL in his left knee and hurt his lower back Monday night during the 34-24 loss at Philadelphia. Gruden said Scherff may be able to wear a brace and start against Dallas, which would be a big help for Washington’s offensive line.

EAGLES: Left tackle Jason Peters and starting linebacker Jordan Hicks will miss the rest of the season after being injured in Monday night’s win over Washington.

Peters tore his right ACL and MCL and Hicks ruptured his right Achilles tendon. Those are two big losses for the NFL-leading Eagles (6-1).

DOLPHINS: Cornerback Byron Maxwell was released by Miami, which signed David Fales to reinforce depth at quarterback.

COLTS: Assistant coach Robert Mathis, 36, was jailed in Carmel, Indiana, on a preliminary charge of driving while intoxicated.

FALCONS: Atlanta signed linebacker Sean Weatherspoon for his third stint with the team, adding depth to the position that lost rookie Duke Riley to a knee injury.
