Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh May be Fined for Action Against Houston Texans Matt Schaub

Ndamukong Suh may suffer some financial loss for his action against Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle will still be allowed to play in Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted that Suh will not be suspended for his actions but a fine may be imposed.

Suh was down after being taken down by an offensive lineman and proceeded strike Schaub. Suh's left cleat hit Schaub's groin area bringing him to his knees after throwing a pass during the first quarter of the game. Perhaps it was a display of poor sportsmanship as Houston secured a win.

It remains unclear whether the act was intentional and Suh has yet to publicly comment. Texans linebacker Connor Barwin felt that it wasn't cause for a suspension.

''I didn't think it was malicious, or a really violent thing, but it was definitely unnecessary,'' Barwin said Monday. ''Just a little something extra at the end.''

''He's building quite a track record of just unnecessary plays,'' Texans left tackle Duane Brown said. ''I consider him to be a very talented player, a very physical player. There's just stuff that you have to do away with. It can get people hurt and it's uncalled for.

''It's our job up front to keep him away from our quarterback. But if our quarterback is able to get rid of the ball, he should be protected from that point on. He can't take kicks to the groin, he can't be pulled down two seconds after the ball is gone. It's nonsense.''
