Suh was flagged for unnecessary roughness after he shoved a scrambling Cutler to the ground in the Bears 24-20 victory at Ford Field. Referee Ed Hochuli called the play "an unnecessary football act" because Suh delivered an illegal forearm.
The defensive lineman appealed the fine.
"No, they haven't [responded]," Suh said Thursday after accepting the NFL Rookie of the Year Award at the Super Bowl media center.
"I'm still in the process right now. As I [understand] it, it [the fine] still stands."
"It was a hit, an aggressive hit. I was just trying to get the ball out. We were down in our redzone and I didn't want them to score. Unfortunately, I got called for it, but obviously I can understand the reasons why I did. But like I said, that's out of my hands. I got to continue to keep playing and move on to the next play."
