The NFL has punished Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for his low block at the knees of Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman John Sullivan.

Suh was fined $100,000 by NFL vice president of operations Merton Hanks, avoiding a potential suspension.

Specifically, the fine stems from his violation of Rule 12, Section 2, Article 5 (a), which outlaws blocks below the waist by players from either team following a change of possession.
