07:01 AM ET 09.10 | Ndamukong Suh was at it again this past weekend, though it appears he won't miss any games. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the league likely will hit Suh with a "heavy" fine for his low hit on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan during Detroit's 34-24 win Sunday. Rapoport reported the Lions defensive tackle unlikely will be suspended for the incident, according to a league source. Suh cut Sullivan's knees out from behind while the Vikings center was trailing an interception return by Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy. Suh was flagged for an illegal low block, which wiped out a Lions touchdown. Quarterback Matthew Stafford then threw an interception, turning Suh's gaffe into a seven-point mistake. "I wasn't by any means going for his knees," Suh said, via ESPN.com.

We all know what Suh is about... Contract season or not, he antics speak loudly.

"I wasn't by any means going for his knees," Suh said, via ESPN.com. Like anybody believes him.

I believe him. I think he was going for the calf to break an ankle.

He'll be resigned by the Lions to a huge contract nonetheless.

This is one time I don't think Suh was bing dirty. That's a hard play to make. He should have let him go but if he hit him high it's a fine, if he hit too low it's a fine, and if the guy tackles his teammate he is lazy for not blocking.

I disagree. That's not a hard play to make. Neither one of them were close to the action and Suh went for his knees from behind. It was a total goon shot.

If the league actually "cares" about the safety of the players, he should be in street clothes for a game or two and fined heavily.

You miss the point - the play had passed them by. The guy Suh dove on was 15 yards behind the ball carrier. There was no need to make the play.

Like all of Suh's issues, they just didn't need to happen for any reason at all. Dude has a rage problem.

A punk by any other name is ......... well a ........ punk.

All you young people that are going after Suh can go soak your head in the toilet because, you do not know what you are talking about! Howie Long Ronnie Lott were very dirty players. Yes I can go back to 50's and now days show you a lot of dirty players. The league is ONLY LOOKING AT Suh and Suh alone. How about Matthews with he did was far worst than Suh's block which was a good block last year.

September 10, 2013  09:42 AM ET

When is someone in the league gonna man up and take a run at him to teach him a lesson???

September 10, 2013  09:47 AM ET

...why do you have to be such an angry young man?

Maybe not... Sadly for him though, his history doesn't give him any latitude.

Perhaps he'll meet his mirror image on another team and suffer a career ending injury. Karma can bite 'cha that way.

Are we talking about Ndamukong Suh or Bashir Al Assad ?

Suh has one excuse for everything he does; " That is not who I am ".

September 10, 2013  10:33 AM ET

Can't stand Suh. Want to see him get suspended for a year one of these days. But this? Much ado about nada. He broke a rule. Wanna see one of the cheap shots of all time? Look up Warren Sapps gutless hit on Chad Clifton. Fine him and just wait for the next time he does something that truly warrants a suspension. It won't take long.

Someone who clearly cheats, or if you prefer, pushes the envelope, when I comes to violence on the field is bound to snap publicaly. Maybe the next Titus Young?

I want to see a big White offensive lineman step on his arm and they say, oh it was an accident. Ya, a hundred says it becomes a racial thing and the white guy sits our four games and has to go to counseling and apologize up and down the league.
Suh has injured two white offensive linemen in plays that did not have to happen.
