NASHVILLE -- The NFL has upheld the one-game suspension of Titans safety Michael Griffin as a repeat offender of the league's rules prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenceless players.

Appeals officer Matt Birk upheld the suspension Tuesday after Griffin appealed the punishment that will keep him out of Sunday's game at Indianapolis.

Griffin was flagged for unnecessary roughness in the second quarter of a 23-19 win Sunday for a hit on Oakland tight end Mychal Rivera. He went low, hitting Rivera as the tight end went to the ground after attempting a catch. It was Griffin's second violation this season and fourth since 2011.

The suspension will cost Griffin $205,882.35 of his $3.5 million base pay this season, and he is prohibited from any football activities until Monday.
