NFL will not punish Ndamukong Suh for incident with Alfred Morris
Monday September 14th, 2015

The NFL will not discipline Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for knocking off Alfred Morris’s helmet Sunday, league spokesman Michael Signora confirmed Monday.

During their season-opening win over the Redskins, Suh appeared to get up and kick Morris’s helmet off after a tackle.

“Suh’s action was not deemed a kick,” Signora said Monday.

Suh also appeared to poke lineman Morgan Moses in the eyes later in the game. The league had no comment on this incident.

The 28-year-old has a history of getting into trouble. He was suspended for stepping on Aaron Rodgers’s leg in Week 17 last season. In 2011, he stomped on the arm of Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Suh signed a six-year, $114 million deal with Miami in March to make him the highest-paid defensive player in the league.

Miami visits Jacksonville in Week 2.
