Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays received a one-game suspension and a $50,000 fine from the NFL for the hit that dislodged Texans quarterback Matt Schaub's helmet and took off a piece of his ear.
Mays will appeal the fine and suspension. According to NFL rules, the appeal will be heard and decided before Sunday's game with the Oakland Raiders.
