Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been fined $100,000 for his illegal hit on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan during Sunday's game.
The hit occurred after Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy intercepted a Christian Ponder pass. Levy returned it for a touchdown, but the score didn't count because Suh committed an illegal block when he lunged at the knees of Sullivan.
Including Tuesday's fine, Suh has been fined a total of $343,000 since the talented 6-foot-4, 307-pounder entered the league in 2010, according to FOX Sports rules expert Mike Pereira.
Suh also received a two-game suspension in 2011 when he stomped on an opponent.
