Report: Ndamukong Suh likely to be heftily fined, not suspended, for low block
Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh will likely face a "heavy fine," but not a suspension, over a low block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan on Sunday.
Ray Anderson, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, said earlier Monday that a suspension of Suh hadn't been ruled out. Anderson said that “all options are on the table with a repeat offender.”
But NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Monday night, citing a league source, that the NFL will likely hand out a "heavy fine" instead of a suspension.
Suh cut out Sullivan from under his knees when blocking on an interception return from linebacker DeAndre Levy. Suh was called for an illegal block, which nullified a Lions' touchdown in an eventual 34-24 win. Suh said that he wasn't intending to block Sullivan in his knees and was instead trying to block him in his waist.
