08:02 AM ET 11.23 | After the game Thursday, Ndamukong Suh, who has already gained a reputation as among the league's least-liked on-the-field opponents, had little to say about the incident. [Suh] was involved in a controversial play involving his foot and an opponent's body part for the second straight Thanksgiving. Suh appeared to kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area after Schaub threw a first-quarter incompletion in the Lions' 34-31 overtime loss at Ford Field. Suh left the locker room before reporters were allowed in after the game, and Schaub was in no mood to talk about the play. "I really don't have anything to say about that play or that person," he said.

Great game though.....

I think Suh should just start drop kickin QB's....

Suh's next career can be as a fluffer.

Hey, anytime I've ever fallen, my leg just happens to swing up and kick guys. Doesn't that happen to you as well?

I thought I was the only one until yesterday.

If you watch the video, it's pretty clear that it was a cheap shot.

I'm not sure if they will punish Suh or not. But, really, shouldn't we let the players take care of this? The next time Suh is running to put a hit on someone, I can see some rather angry offensive lineman or fullback cleaning his clock on a blindside block.

You gotta wonder who raised this kid. I think Choirboy is ruining the game but come on man, stomping people and kicking them in the jewels, that's not football. Something tells me his season might be over.

If he keeps it up, someone is going to serve him a dose of his own medicine. And, the retaliation is almost always worse than the initial cheap shot.

The officials are to blame here too. It is not their job to determine intentions, not possible to do. Their job is to call what they see. Tripping, kicking are 15 yard penalties. Period. Same as if you try to hold up on a kick return block and cannot stop quick enough and push a guy from behind.

Hey! I think you're giving an **** a bad name.

Texans got even with a free TD.

What are you gonna do? Fine him; suspend him? Then he'll turns into a big cry baby and go
running to the union. The union then goes and protects the guilty player and doesn't care about their other players health (the ones taking the abuse... in this case a kick to the nads). Uniion only protects the cheap shot guys; they don't care about the ones taking illegal hits or abuse.

You, sir... are correct!

The only thing the union cares about is making sure active players are getting their game checks, so the union gets its dues.

I think that's what he was trying to do to Cutler a few weeks back.
