After kicking Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin during yesterday’s game, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh could end up getting suspended for one game.
According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, the NFL will review Suh’s kick on Monday and he could face a one-game suspension.
In speaking to sources around football, the general sentiment is that the Lions should take a stand against Suh’s dirty play, instead of waiting for the league to do so.
But since the Lions likely won’t, the NFL will review what was clearly a dirty shot when Suh kicked to the groin ofHouston quarterback Matt Schaub.
One league source estimated Suh could be suspended for one game. The source said that the NFL likely won’t give Suh the benefit of the doubt considering his past incidents.
But it should be made clear: the league has made no official decision and won’t start officially reviewing the incident until next week.
By looking at the image above, it certainly looks like Suh went out of his way to kick Schaub. It’s tiem for the NFL to make a statement.
