Indianapolis Colts linebacker Erik Walden's one-game suspension for head-butting Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker was upheld by appeals officer Matt Birk.

Walden was penalized for unnecessary roughness in the second quarter of last Thursday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans. After ripping the helmet off, Walden delivered a head butt with his helmet to Walker’s uncovered head. Both actions are violations of the playing rules.

Walden may not practice this week nor play in the Colts’ game this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. He may not participate in any football activities with the team during the suspension. Walden will be reinstated on Monday, November 25.
