The NFL has sent a loud message to Ndamukong Suh about his extracurricular activities on the field.
NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks notified Suh on Tuesday that he has been fined $100,000 for his unnecessary roughness penalty in the Detroit Lions' 34-24 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
The $100,000 fine is the largest financial penalty (not counting lost suspension money) for an on-field violation in NFL history.
Suh was flagged for a personal foul after he blindsided Vikings center John Sullivan with a hit to the knees. Sullivan, who underwent microfracture knee surgery in the offseason, avoided serious injury on the play, but he said Monday there needs to be "consequences when guys don't respect the careers of other players."
