Even though Ndamukong Suh insists he didn't kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the family jewels on purpose, the Detroit Lions defensive tackle was fined $30,000 by the NFL today for his actions.
Over the past three years, Suh has been fined for a total of $77,500 by the league. In addition to the $165,467 of lost pay stemming from his two-game suspension last year, Suh has lost a combined $243,147 in salary due to some of his misconduct during his last three seasons. Luckily for Suh and the Lions, he was not suspended and can still help the Lions try to climb out of the 4-7 hole they find themselves in this season.
There is a cause for concern. Suh's rep keeps getting worse each and every game, and he only has 8.5 sacks in the past year and a half compared to the 10 sacks he had in his breakout rookie season. He probably should get ready to make a bank account for all of the fines that he will incur throughout his career.
