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.

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.
