Lions DT Suh Fined $20,000 for Hit on Bengals QB Dalton

On one particular play durring Friday's preseason 34-3 loss to the Detroit Lions, Ndamukong Suh burst through the offensive line and hit Andy Dalton as he released the ball.

Actually, by hit I mean attempted to murder.


That play obviously resulted in a penalty and many figured that it would also result in a fine. Even though there hasn't been an official announcement of any fine from the NFL, Suh's Tweet acts as the breaking news we've been waiting for.!/ndamukong_suh/status/103858721003798528


As Pro Football Talk points out, this isn't Suh's first fine for vicious hits on quarterbacks.

Last year Suh was fined $7,500 for the hit on Delhomme and hten $15,000 for a hit on Jay Cutler. Now he's at $20,000. We'll see if this fine gets his attention, or if the NFL slaps Suh with a James Harrison-sized fine next.

I'm just glad that Suh can continue to practice his WWF moves against other quarterbacks for the rest of the season.
