No suspension for Lions Suh

Posted:

UNDATED (AP) -- The NFL has decided not to suspend Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for his actions against Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in a Thanksgiving Day game.

League spokesman Greg Aiello announced the decision Monday on his Twitter account, adding the "incident' will be reviewed for a potential fine.

Suh's left cleat connected with Schaub's groin area after he threw a pass. The defensive tackle was on his chest after being taken down by an offensive lineman and extended his left foot to hit Schaub below the belt.

A person familiar with the decision says the NFL will not be suspending Saints starting defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley for his kick to the back of offensive lineman Alex Boone's helmet in the final minutes of San Francisco's victory over New Orleans on Sunday.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the league has not announced any punishment yet and a fine is still possible later in the week.

Bunkley was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and ejected with 1:05 left for kicking Boone after the Saints had blocked a field goal.
