NFL fines Suh $30,000 for kicking Houston quarterback in the groin

The NFL on Wednesday fined Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh $30,ooo for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin during a game on Thanksgiving.

Suh has repeatedly denied kicking Schaub on purpose, and he refuses to apologize to the quarterback.

“I was being dragged to the ground and my foot inadvertently hit the man,” Suh said after the game.

The NFL on Monday decided not to suspend Suh, although he has been suspended in the past.

The Texans went on to win the game in overtime.
