Detroit Lines defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh “will likely be suspended for the next egregious flagrant foul” NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports, citing a source.
This comes shortly after Suh was fined $100,000 for a low block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan in Week 1.

“I have no say in the process (despite) being a part of the situation,” Sullivan told USA TODAY Sports. “The league did what they felt was appropriate and the matter is settled.”
“I’m just happy I wasn’t hurt — seriously injured,” said Sullivan. “There’s a reason that play is illegal. It’s incredibly dangerous. I just feel fortunate that I’ll be playing this week.”
Other players are also taking notice of Suh’s rough play such as New Orleans Saints tight end Ben Watson.
“I hesitate to call a player dirty simply because I don’t know their intent, but I do know what he did was illegal and I do know he has done it multiple times so it comes a time when enough is enough,” Watson told Andrew Siciliano on NFL Network. “We need to get what he is doing rectified and we need to sit down as players and talk to him. We are talking about player safety and obviously this is a play that lies outside of that. As players, we need to hold ourselves accountable.”
