Lions Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh Fined For Low Block Against Vikings

The NFL threw the hammer down on Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh on Tuesday, by fining him for another questionable hit that he added to his resume on Sunday.


The NFL may have a new king to the throne of "the dirtiest player". Lions defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh has been doling out questionable hits since his entrance into the NFL back in 2010 and has been disciplined numerous times for these questionable plays. On Sunday against the Vikings, Suh was penalized for another questionable hit--this time a low block on a Minnesota offensive lineman during an interception made by a teammate.

The hit has cost Suh a big chunk of cash, as the NFL has decided to fin Suh $100,000 for the low hit, according to multiple sources. Opinions range on how cheap the hit was, but the league obviously wanted to make another statement on player safety. They also wanted to set an expensive precedent for a player that has a track record of questionable plays.

If Suh continues this trend of dirty hits, it's quite possible that the league would look at suspending him from games from now on. If a $100,000 fine doesn't change Suh's playing style, perhaps missing time will. In the meantime, here is a montage of some of the hits.
