DETROIT Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions will not be suspended for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin in last week's 34-31 overtime loss.
NFL senior vice president of communications Greg Aiello tweeted Monday that the league notified the Lions that Suh will not be suspended but that the play "will be reviewed for a potential fine." Suh's foot hit Schaub in the groin as he was spun to the ground after a first-quarter pass rush. Schaub, who immediately fell to the ground in pain, said in a radio interview Monday he wouldn't want Suh as a teammate.
"No, you don't want a player like that," Schaub said.
Suh, twice named the NFL's dirtiest player in anonymous Sporting News player polls, was not penalized on the play and has drawn just one penalty for encroachment in Week 2 this season.
