04:35 PM ET 11.28 | The NFL decided not to suspend Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for his shot to the groin of Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on Thanksgiving day, but the star defensive lineman did not avoid all punishment. The league announced on Wednesday afternoon that they have fined Suh $30,000 for the kick. Suh avoided suspension after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league was having a hard time deciding whether or not the kick was intentional, but the league decided there must have been some malicious intent in order to deliver the fine. It is surprising that Suh got away without a suspension, despite using his foot to strike a player for the second-straight year on Thanksgiving. The NFL is generally hard on repeat offenders, but Suh was able to escape this situation without much punishment for his actions.
