Ndamukong Suh up to his old tricks for Detroit Lions

In case you were wondering, Ndamukong Suh has not had some offseason epiphany about his punishing ways on the football field.

We know this because we watched the Detroit Lions defensive tackle on Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.

We start early in the first quarter of the Browns' 24-6 preseason victory, when Suh showed off his speed (and that famous mean streak) in delivering a violent shove that sent Cleveland running back Trent Richardson sprawling out of bounds.

Browns color analyst Bernie Kosar (who managed to avoid trouble during the telecast) complimented Suh's athleticism but added the hit was "a little late."

Suh wasn't flagged for the play. He wasn't as fortunate later in the quarter, when he knocked Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden to the ground and was assessed with a 15-yard penalty for roughing the passer. The personal foul kick-started a Browns touchdown drive.

Something tells us this won't be the first time yellow laundry lands in a space between Suh's Nikes and a prone quarterback.
