Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is facing NFL league imposed discipline. An NFL Insider has reported this impending action to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The league will likely be taking action after Suh was flagged on Sunday for a 15-yard penalty that Suh was called for on a low block against Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan.
The play occurred after the Lions intercepted a pass and was in the process of running the pass back for a touchdown. The penalty on Suh nullified the apparent touchdown.
Suh told reporters after the game that he wasn’t intending to injure the Vikings center. “I wasn’t by any means going for his knees. He knows that. We had a great conversation running out at halftime, and he understood. My aim was his waist to cut him off.”
Sullivan saw the play a little different. “That was bad,” said Sullivan. Vikings defensive end Jared Allen agreed and disapproved on Suh’s play.
Suh added to reporters, “I spoke to him. We’re good, and that’s all that matters.” Well we’ll see how the league office feels about whether or not it’s all good.
