02:10 PM ET 11.28 | While outsiders continue to speculate on the player's intentions, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh insists that he didn't mean to hit Houston Texansquarterback Matt Schaub in the groin during last week's game. "I was dragged to the ground, and my foot inadvertently hit the man," Suh said when asked about the play by reporters on Wednesday. The latest in a long run of controversial hits by the third-year lineman, that shaky history has played into how the public has ultimately perceived the play. The NFL reviewed the play this week, and while it said that it would consider Suh's history in making a decision, the league announced recently that Suh won't be suspended, but he could still be fined.

If that's what actually happened I might believe him but it was obvious to me he made the effort to extend his leg in order to make contact with said groin.

But can he spell it ?

Could he be telling the truth? I guess so...........but I don't believe him. His past history, both on and off the field mark him as a jerk IMO. He'd be far better off to concentrate on his defensive efforts, his undeniable talent and less on being a tough guy.

Seems to be a big guy with a small brain...he will get his before long. Sad thing is, he has natural talent, but making very stupid decisions

That is exaclty right! Initially he falling down and at the last second Suh bent his leg and extended it into Schaub's groin area.

That's what I saw too, it was a definite effort to kick Schaub

Suh hasn't done anything to earn the benefit of the doubt.

November 28, 2012  04:08 PM ET

Suh was probably disoriented and thought he was aiming for his girlfriend's ****.

November 28, 2012  04:24 PM ET

Yeah, and I'm the Queen of England. Thug.

It was also inadvertent when he stomped on the other players.

This guys a punk. It's just a matter of time before someone takes him out at the knees.
