Ndamukong Suh will not face punishment from NFL for actions in Colts game
Detroit Lions defensive tackle and all-around NFL bad boy Ndamukong Suh is the center of attention again for all the wrong reasons.
But, to his credit, Suh will reportedly not face a punishment this time from the NFL in his latest incident following his questionable behavior in Sunday’s down-to-the-wire loss to the Indianapolis Colts, according to Ed Werder of ESPN.com.
Suh had given Colts right tackle Winston Justice a concussion in the middle of a block on an interception, and then reportedly proceeded to stand over Justice, laughing at him. There was no penalty on the play and, according to a league source, nothing in the game footage indicates that there was any kind of violation that took place that would warrant any kind of action from the league.
After the game, Colts center Mike McGlynn called those actions “ignorant” and said there’s “no room for that” in a professional game:
“Totally ignorant on their part, just childish stuff. We’re all battling out there; I don’t know if the hit was legal or not, but clearly he was hurt, and they’re out there dancing and pointing at him and laughing. Just blatant disrespect. They’re good players, but there’s no room for that. It’s disgusting, really.”
Lions head coach Jim Schwartz came to Suh’s defense, saying the players were just celebrating an interception when Justice was knocked out.
The news that he won’t be penalized comes one week after the NFL levied yet another fine against Suh, this time for $30,000 for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.
