Suggs will pay for the deed.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the NFL fined Suggs $8,268 for the late hit on the Pittsburgh Steelers running back, per a league source.
The linebacker drew a flag for unnecessary roughness and sparked pushing and shoving on both sides. Blount was uninjured on the play.
After the game, Suggs denied the play was dirty.
"He was running. He was still up and he was moving the pile," he said. "I assessed the play, and that was the only way I could get him down without him gaining more yards. I wasn't trying to get him hurt. I was just trying to get the big guy down."
The NFL disagreed with Suggs, hence the fine.
