The NFL could not determine if Ndamukong Suh’s intent was to kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub where it counts – in the groin – so the league opted not to suspend the controversial defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions.
But Suh didn’t get away without a punishment. No penalty was called during the Thanksgiving Day game, but the NFL came down on Suh with a fine of $30,000, according to NFL.com. The league announced on Monday that Suh would not be suspended for the act.
Suh was suspended for two games last season after he stomped on the arm of Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Diertrich-Smith.
