In DET, cant block below the waist after a change of possession. #90 went low.— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) September 8, 2013
Suh WILL be fined for the hit. It was an illegal hit below the waist after a change of possession. This has always been the rule.— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) September 8, 2013
Pereira also said prior history is a factor when the league considers fines and punishment.
After the game, Suh talked about the play:
"On that particular play, I'm looking to make a block," he said. "I'm just throwing to make a block, and really cut him off so he doesn't get a chance to get home. I spoke to him - it wasn't intended, by any means. I wasn't going for his knee, and he knows that. We had a great conversation about it at halftime, and he understood."
You won't want to miss the fining process from a player's perspective - mainly how payment is deducted, and why it's better if players don't send cash to the league office in New York.
