The NFL indicated it would be looking extra close at Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's kick of Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub for possible discipline because of Suh's prior history.
Suh's track record wasn't enough to get him suspended.
We'd expect the fine to be hefty. In choosing not to suspend Suh, the NFL might have decided it was difficult to establish clear intent in this particular Thanksgiving Day case. It also might have thought the severity of Suh's kick didn't warrant a full suspension.
It did draw the ire of Schaub, who said Suh's actions were not "Texan-worthy."@greggrosenthal.
