ALLEN PARK, mich.
A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press the NFL has fined Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh $31,500 for a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden.
The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the fine had not been announced.
Earlier in the day, Ndamukong Suh insisted he was unaware the NFL was reviewing his hit on Weeden on Sunday. Suh wasn’t penalized for the play, but it was shown on a video posted on NFL.com as vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said he wanted to look at it more for “potential helmet to the body.”
Suh was fined $100,000 for an illegal block on Minnesota center John Sullivan in Week 1.
“I think there is always going to be a microscope on me,” Suh said. “I think there has been a microscope on me since I was first drafted.”
