Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh isn't worried about cut blocks as offensive linemen try to take out his knees.

"It happens all the time, it's not going to stop," Suh told Detroit reporters. "I look forward to it. Look forward to keep making plays down the field. That's my job. To me, it's just gnats that are in the air that keep going after you and you swat at them.

"Sometimes you hit them, sometimes you don't. Sometimes they run away. Sometimes they come back again. Ultimately, I'm that bee going to find that honey hole. That's what I go and do."

It happened against the Arizona Cardinals last week, but no flag was thrown.

Suh was fined $100,000 for his low block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan with an appeal pending next week.

"For an offensive lineman to do it, it's legal," Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. "He can't do it from behind but from the front, it's legal. You know, is it less of an injury risk? No. But, you know, it's a legal play as opposed to one that is penalized."
