Lions DT Ndamukong Suh facing discipline for low hit

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Ndamukong Suh's low hit on John Sullivan cost the Detroit Lions a touchdown Sunday. Now, it could cost Suh some money.

WXYZ has learned the Lions defensive tackle is facing league discipline for his hit on the knees of the Vikings player.

Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy returned an interception for a touchdown, but the score was taken off the board after Suh was caught hitting Sullivan well behind the action.

Suh told reporters after the game he was not trying to injure Sullivan.

"I wasn't by any means going for his knees. He knows that. We had a great conversation running out at halftime, and he understood. My aim was his waist to cut him off," Suh said.

Sullivan said the hit was bad, and his teammate Jared Allen, was more outspoken. Allen said it was "uncalled for."

In his career, Suh has been suspended two games for stomping on Green Bay Packers tackle Evan Dietrich-Smith in 2011 and fined in 2012 for kicking Houstan Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin.
