Ndamukong Suh will not be suspended but could be fined

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions defensive end Ndamukong Suh will not be suspended by the league office for the incident involving his foot and Matt Schaub's groin.

The Detroit Lions were recently notified by the league office that defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will not be suspended for last Thursday's incident involving Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello tweets. The third-year pro could still be fined for his actions, though.

During Thursday afternoon's Thanksgiving Day match-up against Houston, Suh was seen kicking Schaub in the groin area while falling to the ground near the end of a play. The defenseless Schaub immediately collapsed to the ground, clearly in pain from Suh's possibly deliberate move.

While it's not entirely clear whether Suh intended to hit Schaub specifically where he did, or at all, the public's perception of the situation isn't helped by Suh's controversial past, which includes suspensions and fines for inappropriate on-field behavior.

The NFL said recently that it would consider his history in reviewing this incident, though that consideration still didn't yield a suspension from the league.

On Sunday, the Lions host the Indianapolis Colts at 1:00 p.m. ET.
