Ndamukong Suh likely to be fined by NFL for low block, per report

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Ndamukong Suh could once again face discipline from the NFL for a questionable play.

Ndamukong Suh is no stranger to NFL discipline and Detroit's defensive tackle could be facing punishment from the league again, following a questionable play in Sunday's game. Suh was flagged for a low block against the Vikings and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Suh is likely to be fined for the incident.

The play in question occurred during the second quarter when Suh was flagged for an illegal low block following an interception. Suh dove at the legs of Vikings offensive lineman John Sullivan, but Suh claims he was not intentionally going for Sullivan's knees.

"I wasn't by any means going for his knees," Suh said, via ESPN.com. "He knows that. We had a great conversation running out at halftime, and he understood. My aim was his waist to cut him off."

This isn't the first time Suh has been at the center of a controversial play. He was suspended two games in 2011 after he stomped on the arm of an opposing offensive linemen. Suh was also fined last season for kicking Texans quarterback Matt Schaub during a play.

The enigmatic lineman's history could increase the likelihood of disciplinary action, but Rapoport said Suh is unlikely to be suspended.
