NFL Injury Report:
Following yet another questionable play during Sunday’s regular-season opener, Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh appeared to be in line for a suspension. While he expects Suh to be hit with a hefty fine, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that the big man isn’t likely to be suspended by the league.As I said on @NFL_ATL Live: Ndamukong Suh will likely be hit with a heavy fine for his low hit vs. #Vikings, unlikely to be suspended.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 9, 2013The questionable play occurred when Suh went low to block Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan during an interception return. Suh was flagged for an illegal low block, and it appeared he was going for Sullivan’s knees during the play.For his part, Suh said he wasn’t going for Sullivan’s knees, adding that the center “knows that.”"I wasn't by any means going for his knees," Suh said after Detroit's 34-24 victory. "He knows that. We had a great conversation running out at halftime, and he understood. My aim was his waist to cut him off."Sullivan didn’t know that, as he said “that was bad.” He added that he feels lucky that he didn’t suffer a serious injury during the play. Sullivan did add later that he didn’t feel Suh was intentionally trying to hurt him, but that doesn’t take away the fact that the defensive lineman went low illegally.This is just the latest incident for Suh, who continues to maintain that he’s not a dirty player. Considering his history, incidents like the one with Sullivan on Sunday will only continue stoking the fire.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

Another game, another bad decision by Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions.
