Another Fine For Lions' Ndamukong Suh After Hit On Bengals' Andy Dalton

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh will have a portion of his check missing once again. Suh indicated on Twitter that he's been fined for his hit last week on Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton writing:

$20,000REALLY???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #NFL #BIGFAIL

It was a fairly obvious call for the league to make the decision to fine him. He hit drove Dalton to the ground after the ball left his hand which is a point of emphasis the NFL has been making in recent years.

What's interesting to look at is the history of fines for Suh. Last year, it was $7,500 for a nasty hit on QB Jake Delhomme and later in the season it was $15,000 for another quarterback hit on QB Jay Cutler.

Now the fine has escalated to $20,000, which could be bad news for Suh. If he delivers another hit the league deems fine-worthy, the amount could grow past $20,000.
