The Associated Press reported that Beckham was suspended on Monday for his conduct during the New York Giants’ loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Beckham appealed the suspension, but it was upheld on Wednesday.
The Giants wide receiver earned three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the first three quarters of the Giants, Panthers game.
In one of the incidences, Beckham can be seen on video lunging toward Josh Norman’s head in the second quarter, hitting the Panthers corner back.
Norman was fined $26,044 for his role in the confrontations.
Beckham had previously claimed that some Panthers players threatened him and called him slurs, something that Panthers coach Ron Rivera denies.
Beckham will have to sit out of this Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
The Panthers would go on to win Sunday’s game against the Giants, putting Carolina at 14-0.
