Suh will appeal $15,000 fine for hit on Bears' Cutler
ALLEN PARK -- What is going on here? Does the NFL have something against Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh?
The rookie has been fined $15,000 for his hit on Bears QB Jay Cutler on Sunday. Suh said he will make an appeal through his agent Roosevelt Barnes. Basically Suh pushed Cutler down with two outstretched arms while the quarterback was out of the pocket and scrambling.
Referee Ed Hochuli later referred to it as “a non-football act.” Coach Jim Schwartz disputed the call during his Monday press conference and didn’t want to comment further today.
Suh was fined $7,500 for his hit on Cleveland QB Jake Delhomme in a preseason contest.
