Lions DT Ndamukong Suh Won’t Be Fined For Swipe at Patriots DL Logan Mankins
At first, it seemed like there was a good chance Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh would be fined for the second time before the regular season even started after it looked like he attempted to throw a punch at Logan Mankins of the New England Patriots last weekend. According to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com, that no longer appears to be the case.
Suh was already fined $20,000 a few weeks ago after throwing Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to the ground after a play was over during the team’s first preseason game of the 2011 season. Since there was no actual contact between Suh’s punch and Mankins, this was the right call by the league–but it’s safe to say they’ll have their eyes on the Defensive Rookie of the Year throughout the 2011 season considering he’s already trying to fight off the “dirty player” label that’s been placed on him by numerous analysts.
