Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub said Monday that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Sug isn't "Houston Texan-worthy," according to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk.

Suh kicked Schaub in the groin during their game Thanksgiving game on Thursday.

Schaub said during a radio appearance that he wouldn't want Suh as a teammate:

Schaub then elaborated that the Texans wouldn't accept Suh on their team because the Texans believe in playing the game the right way, and Suh does not.

"No, you don't want a player like that. The stuff that he stands for and the type of player he is, that's not Houston Texan-worthy. That's not what we're about."

The NFL is expected to review the groin-kicking incident on Monday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Suh, 25, isn't new to NFL discipline. The second-overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft earned a two-game suspension last season when he stomped on a Green Bay Packers lineman on Thanksgiving.

Suh has started 11 games for the Lions this season. He's racked up 16 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

In his career, Suh hasn't missed a game – except for that two-game suspension he served last season. As a rookie in 2010, Suh picked up 10 sacks and 48 tackles in 16 games.
