DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit star Ndamukong Suh has been fined 100,000 by the NFL for his illegal low block in the season-opening victory over the Minnesota Vikings last weekend.
NFL spokesman Randall Liu says vice president of football operations Merton Hanks notified the Detroit defensive tackle of the fine. Suh hit Vikings center John Sullivan during an interception return, drawing a penalty that negated a touchdown by Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy.
Suh said he wasn't going after Sullivan's knees, adding that the two discussed the play at halftime. Detroit players said Suh apologized to the team Tuesday.
The NFL fined Suh 30,000 last year for unnecessary roughness when he kicked Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. He was suspended two games in 2011 after stomping on Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Ndamukong Suh still hasn’t learned sportsmanship, and he’s going to pay big time for it. Suh laid a low block on Vikings center John Sullivan during an interception return in the Lions’ 34-32 win on Sunday. The block was not only low, but also far enough away from the play that it could easily be deemed unnecessary and almost malicious. The NFL wass considering suitable punishments...

Another game, another bad decision by Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions.
Suh added to his list of boneheaded plays Sunday by purposely blocking Vikings lineman John Sullivan low. The safer play would have clearly been to block Sullivan high. The good news is that Sullivan was not injured on the play. The better news is that Suh should receive a disciplinary call Monday or Tuesday...
