Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has a reputation for aggressive, sometimes dirty, play, and he burnished that reputation in Friday's preseason game against the Jaguars with a hard, late hit on Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne.

Suh was flagged for roughing the passer, a personal foul, after he lowered his head into Henne's chest after the QB threw a pass in the second quarter. Click here to view the play, courtesy of SB Nation.

Henne appeared fine after the play and did not leave the game, according to ESPN.com's Michael Rothstein.

Suh was fined his rookie year in the preseason for a hit on then-Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme in 2010, as he grabbed Delhomme's helmet and threw him down, Rothstein reports.

The 27-year-old Suh, who is a three-time Pro Bowler, has 27.5 sacks and an interception in four seasons with the Lions.
