Ndamukong Suh has a hard time playing by the NFL rules of hitting, and yesterday’s game wasn’t any different.
Suh’s illegal low block in Detroit’s game on Sunday against the Vikings will be reviewed for potential discipline, NFL spokesman Randall Liu confirmed Monday in an email to the Associated Press.
Suh, a Lions defensive tackle, hit center John Sullivan during an interception return, and the penalty against him negated a touchdown during Detroit’s 34-24 win. Suh said he wasn’t going after Sullivan’s knees, adding the two talked about it at halftime.
“I spoke to him, we’re good,” Suh said after Sunday’s game. “So that’s all that matters.”
Sullivan said the hit was part of the game, and it was penalized.
The NFL fined Suh $30,000 last year for unnecessary roughness because he kicked Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. He was also suspended for two games in 2011 after he stomped on Green Bay’s Evan Dietrich-Smith.
Suh has also been fined in previous seasons for roughing up quarterbacks: Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton, Chicago’s Jay Cutler and Cleveland’s Jake Delhomme.
