Lions' Suh avoids penalty for hit against Arizona

BY foxsports • September 27, 2013

Despite his reputation, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh won't be suspended or fined by the NFL for an incident back in the second week of the season.

The play -- in which Suh knocked Arizona offensive lineman Eric Winston to the turf with an apparent elbow to the head -- evidently went undetected by the league until seven days later, when ProFootballTalk.com released the video on its website.

The league reportedly was going to review the tape, but decided not to dish out any punishment in the end.

Suh's teammates, defensive tackles Nick Fairley and C.J. Mosley, weren't so fortunate this week. Fairley got fined $10,000 for an unnecessary roughness penalty last Sunday at Washington, and Mosley was docked $7,875 for a face mask.

Suh has gone two weeks without a fine since getting hit for $100,000 in the opening week after a controversial low block against Minnesota.

Speculation has been that Suh will be suspended for his next flagrant misdeed, so he might have caught a break with the Winston incident.
