Ndamukong Suh: 'My foot inadvertently hit' Matt Schaub

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh insists that he didn't intentionally hit Matt Schaub in the groin on Thanksgiving Day.

While outsiders continue to speculate on his intentions, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh insists that he didn't mean to hit Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin during last week's game, CBS Sports' John Kreger tweets.

"I was dragged to the ground, and my foot inadvertently hit the man," Suh said when asked about the play by reporters on Wednesday.

The latest in a long run of controversial hits by the third-year lineman, that shaky history has played into how the public has ultimately perceived the play. The NFL reviewed the play this week and, although it said that it would consider Suh's history in making a decision, announced recently that Suh won't be suspended.

The league could still fine Suh for the hit, but he'll be on the field Sunday night when the Lions visit the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Suh was suspended last year after stomping on the arm of Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith during the 2011 Thanksgiving Day game.
