Suh Fined for hit on Andy Dalton
Detroit Lions defensive end Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM'-uh-kehn soo) has been fined $20,000 by the NFL for a hit on Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton. Suh responded on his Twitter account before Tuesday's practice: “$20,000REALLY???!!!''
The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year grabbed the Bengals quarterback and threw Dalton to the turf after he had gotten rid of the ball late in the first quarter of Friday's preseason game. Suh was flagged for unnecessary roughness. Suh was fined twice last year for roughing up quarterbacks, including Chicago's Jay Cutler during the regular season and Cleveland's Jake Delhomme in a preseason game.
Suh's checking account can absorb the latest hit. His five-year contract is worth $40 million guaranteed and as much as $68 million.
