MLB trade deadline:

Lions' Suh won't be punished by league

The SportsXchange

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh won't be punished for his latest brush with brutality, ESPN.com reported, citing a league source.

Indianapolis Colts players accused Suh of giving right tackle Winston Justice a concussion Sunday while blocking on an interception return, then mocked him.

Suh wasn't penalized, and the league found no type of violation on a replay, ESPN.com reported.

The Colts' Mike McGlynn called out Suh to the Indianapolis Star.

"Totally ignorant on their part, just childish stuff," McGlynn told the paper. "We're all battling out there; I don't know if the hit was legal or not, but clearly he was hurt, and they're out there dancing and pointing at him and laughing. Just blatant disrespect. They're good players, but there's no room for that. It's disgusting, really."

Lions coach Jim Schwartz told reporters Monday that nothing on the coaches' film supported McGlynn's charges.

"What shows on the coaches' film is we make an interception with six minutes to go, and we're up two scores, and looks like it's a really great chance to be able to win that game," Schwartz said. "Guys were looking to make blocks, guys made blocks. It's off after that. There were no penalties on that play. Our guys were rightfully excited. We had a very good pass rush on that. The quarterback, like we had talked about all week, had to elevate his throw. We're excited about it. I don't think anybody's reveling in anybody being injured or anything like that."
