Ndamukong Suh Hit [VIDEO]: NFL Looking Into Detroit Lions DT Week 2 Elbow To Eric Winston's Head
Ndamukong Suh just can't seem to stay off the NFL's radar. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle, who was already fined $100,000 by the league for his dirty block that blindsided Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan and took out his knees, is now being investigated for an elbow to the head on Arizona Cardinals' tackle Eric Winston during the Lions' 25-21 loss in Week 2.
According to SportingNews.com, Suh isn't expected to be suspended since the Lions (2-1) have played a game since the incident occurred, with the team having defeated the Washington Redskins (0-3) 27-20 on Sunday.
Reports indicated that the Lions didn't send video to the league for them to review the play, which is usually how the reviews process begins, but a source from the league explained that what Suh did was a clear violation of the rules and the defensive tackle should be hearing from the league soon.
Suh, in his fourth season with Detroit, has developed quite a reputation for hurting players with his hits and his dirty play, which is possibly what led to such a hefty fine.
Through the first three games, Suh has amounted seven tackles. In his career, Suh has played in 49 games and has one interception and one touchdown to his credit while also amassing 106 tackles.
Suh is planning on appealing the $100,000 fine the league doled out to him last week following his Week 1 hit on Sullivan, which happened after Suh was attempting to block the center after a Detroit interception. The penalty for Suh's low hit on a defenseless player from behind cost the Lions a touchdown, but the team eventually won the game 34-24.
The fine was a lot more costly than originally expected, leading Suh to wonder if the league was taxing him for the hit on Sullivan or for his past reputation after commissioner Roger Goodell vowed to come down hard on repeat offenders.
"You got to ask the league that question, whether they wanted to make a decision off my reputation or off of this year or whatever it may be," Suh told NFL.com after Week 1. "It's the first game of the year, so I don't know."
If the NFL fined him that heavily for his first offense of the season, it seems that Suh may be emptying out his pockets again following a second infraction in as many weeks.
