Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh avoided a suspension, but the NFL fined him $30,000 for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub during a Thanksgiving Day game.
The league reviewed the incident and levied the fine Wednesday, NFL.com reported. Suh was blocked to the ground on the play and swung his left leg, which struck Schaub in the groin area.
Suh, considered one of the league's dirtiest players, said earlier that he didn't plan to apologize for the play.
"I was being dragged to the ground and my foot inadvertently hit the man," Suh said, according to WXYT-FM in Detroit.
