DETROIT (AP) — The NFL has decided not to suspend Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM’-uh-kehn soo) for his actions against Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.
League spokesman Greg Aiello announced the decision Monday on his Twitter account, adding the “incident’ will be reviewed for a potential fine.
Suh’s left cleat connected with Schaub’s groin area after he threw a pass in the first quarter of last Thursday’s game. The defensive tackle was on his chest after being taken down by an offensive lineman and extended his left foot to hit Schaub below the belt.
Suh was suspended for two games a year ago after he was ejected for stomping on the right arm of Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith during a game on Thanksgiving.
