Oakland Raiders star running back Marshawn Lynch will miss his team's game against the Buffalo Bills on Oct. 22, 2017 after his one-game suspension was approved. Lynch was suspended for pushing a referee during the game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 19, 2017.

Lynch has played in a total of seven games this season. He has 72 rushing attempts and has gained 266 rushing yards. Lynch also has 3.7 rushing yards per attempt and has scored two touchdowns so far this season, according to Pro Football Reference.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported the league's appeals officer, James Thrash, made the ruling on Oct. 24, 2017 suspending Lynch for one game, according to Bleacher Report.

Addition to the one-game suspension, Lynch is going to lose a lot of money. The running back is going to lose his $79,411 check for the week eight game. He is also going to lose a $31,250 roster bonus. So, in total, Lynch is going to lose $110,661.

Lynch will be able to return when the Raiders play the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 5, 2017 at 8:30 p.m. The Oakland Raiders have three wins and four losses so far this season and are currently ranked fourth in the AFC West, according to nfl.com.
