Ndamukong Suh facing NFL discipline for low block?

Leon Halip

According to a report, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh could be disciplined by the NFL for his low block on Sunday.

We're only one week into the 2013 NFL regular season and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is already involved in a controversy for something that happened on the field. This time, the controversy has nothing to do with a hit on a quarterback or a stomp after the play. Instead, it revolves around a low block by Suh on an interception return in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Suh unnecessarily dove at an offensive lineman chasing DeAndre Levy, resulting in a flag and the pick-six being taken off the board.

Now, Suh is looking at more than just a penalty for his low block. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Suh is "facing NFL discipline" for what happened on the play. Schefter did not make it clear what exactly "NFL discipline" means in this case, but I'm guessing it's a fine rather than a possible suspension (or at least I'm hoping it's merely a fine).

Following Sunday's game, Suh addressed the play and said this (via MLive):

"On that particular play, I'm looking to make a block," Suh said. "I'm just throwing to make a block, and really cut him off so he doesn't get a chance to get home. I spoke to him. We're good.

"It wasn't intended, by any means. I wasn't going for his knee, and he knows that. We had a great conversation about it at halftime, and he understood. My aim point was his waist, to cut him off."

Vikings center John Sullivan, the player who went down on the block, didn't miss a single snap on Sunday, for what it's worth.

UPDATE: Dave Birkett reports that a suspension hasn't been ruled out by the NFL.
