Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is in damage control mode once again after another NFL team accused him of a dirty play this past week, but Suh says he didn't do anything wrong during the team's Week 13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Suh is under fire because he laid out Colts offensive lineman Winston Justice on a block during an interception return, and Indianapolis players have accused him of celebrating the hit and taunting Justice in the process.

Justice suffered a concussion on the play, and Suh told the Detroit Free Press the whole situation after the block is just a misunderstanding:

"Since Sunday, there's been, I mean, tremendous accusations, a lot of things that have been said about me and the particular play that happened between me and Winston Justice," Suh said. "I'm the type of player that would never celebrate anybody being hurt.

"I was celebrating about my team playing well. And I've been the guy since the beginning of that game, especially, just excited, elated. You saw me jumping around with Nick (Fairley) and for me, I feel bad that it was something I even had to deal with on Sunday and really, throughout the week."

Suh has not received a fine from the NFL, but a spokesman for the league told the Detroit Free Press that nothing will be officially announced until Friday.

The Lions will travel to Green Bay to take on Aaron Rodgers and Packers on Sunday Night Football in Week 14.
