Report: Ndamukong Suh fined $15,000 for hit on Jay Cutler
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been fined $15,000 by the NFL for his hit on Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler on Sunday.
Suh's agent, former Lions linebacker Roosevelt Barnes, confirmed the fine to FOX Sports Detroit, saying, "It's ridiculous."
Cutler's reaction? "I'm not surprised by that."
When Suh hit Cutler from behind in the fourth quarter, referee Ed Hochuli threw a flag for unnecessary roughness and Lions Coach Jim Schwartz immediately argued the call.
On Monday, Schwartz was still shaking his head Monday at Hochuli's description of the infraction as "an unnecessary non-football act -- a blow to the back of the runner's helmet in the process of him going down."
" 'Non-football act,' we really don't know what the definition of that is," Schwartz said. "I've not seen a definition of 'non-football act' before."
