Lions' Ndamukong Suh Not Fined After Penalty In Falcons Game

It looks like Ndamukong Suh isn't as dirty as many consider him to be - at least this week. The Lions defensive tackle was called for a face-mask penalty on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan on Sunday. Ryan had ducked to avoid contact and Suh's left hand hit the face mask, which is a 15-yard penalty no matter the severity.

But according to Fox Sports Detroit, by way of Suh's agent, Rosey Barnes, Suh will not be receiving a fine for the incident. The league usually notifies players or their agents of fines by the Wednesday following the game in which the incidents occur. This was just one the "offenses" by Suh in the game. The other, which is still up-in-the-air, was an incident where Suh, along with fellow defensive lineman Cliff Avril, allegedly taunted Ryan when he went down with an ankle injury.

As it stands, the Falcons haven't brought up any proof on the incident and the video we can see doesn't show anything obvious. So Suh is, for now, not dirty.
