It’s not hard to believe, but Ndamukong Suh was fined for an illegal hit on Brandon Weeden this past Sunday. He has been fined for a total $209,000, and docked another $165,294 for his stomping on Thanksgiving 2011. During Sunday’s game he wasn’t flagged for the hit, but after the NFL had reviewed the tape, they found he had “lowered his head” and hit Weeden directly in his chest – helmet first.
“I think there’s always going to be a microscope on me,” Suh told the Detroit Free Press, “I think there’s been a microscope on me since I was first drafted in 2010, ’cause I was a first-round pick. There’s always going to be a microscope on me, no matter where it is, from outside media, from the NFL to little kids to everybody. So there’s going to be somewhat of a microscope. My face is out there. That’s kind of part of life.”
