NFL may suspend Ndamukong Suh for low block
The NFL is reviewing Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s low block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan, according to a USA Today report.
Ray Anderson, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, said that a suspension of Suh hasn’t been ruled out and that Suh may be facing a suspension and/or fine for the block. Anderson said that “all options are on the table with a repeat offender.”
Suh has been disciplined multiple times by the NFL for his play on the field. Suh was suspended for stomping on the arm of Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith in a Thanksgiving day game in 2011. Suh was fined $30,000 for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin on Thanksgiving in 2012.
Suh said he was attempting to block Sullivan at his waist and that he talked to Sullivan about the play during halftime. Suh said Sullivan “understood” that Suh wasn’t trying to block him at his knees.
