ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh claims he didnt even know he kicked Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin until after the Thanksgiving Day game when he started reading messages about the incident on Twitter.
Suh met with the media Wednesday for the first time since the controversial play.
Its a crazy play, he said. Its one that unfortunately happened. I didnt even realize until the end of the game and (on) my twitter feed, I see my friends telling me about it.
You cant do much more about it. I was being dragged to the ground and my foot inadvertently hit the man. Its over with. Im moving forward.
Asked if he felt he should apologize to Schaub even if the kick was unintentional, Suh said, I was dragged to the ground. A lot of things happen to me. Its part of the game.
While there was an outcry that Suh should get suspended for the incident, the NFL announced Monday that there would be no suspension.
Suh said he never talked to any league officials about the play, but he added that he has heard about a possible fine. The NFL announces fines every Friday.
