Report: NFL looks into another Suh incident
And you thought Ndamukong Suh could stay out of controversy for a week.
The NFL reportedly will review an incident involving the often-penalized Detroit Lions star from last week’s game at Arizona.
ProFootballTalk.com was the first to report Sunday about the issue, which apparently went unnoticed by the league throughout the week.
Early in the third quarter of the Lions' Week 2 game, Suh is seen on a replay from an end-zone angle knocking Arizona offensive lineman Eric Winston to the turf with some combination of punch, forearm and/or elbow to the back of the head or possibly upper back area.
ProFootballTalk reported that the league plans to review the case, albeit a little late, but that Suh more likely will be fined rather than suspended at this point, partly because if he were to be suspended, it should have been for Sunday’s game, a 27-20 victory at Washington.
The speculation following Suh’s $100,000 fine for an illegal block at the knees of a Minnesota player in the opening game was that he would be suspended for his next flagrant violation.
Fortunately for him, none of this from the Arizona game became public until it was too late to do anything before Sunday’s game.
Suh reiterated after his most recent punishment came down that he wasn’t going to change his style, and he apparently meant it.
