Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is facing discipline from the NFL for diving at the knees of an opposing player during Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, a league official told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The controversial play occurred during an interception return by Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy, who scored a touchdown to give Detroit the lead. But the touchdown was nullified because Suh was whistled for an illegal low block against Vikings center John Sullivan, who was well behind the play.
Suh’s block drew a 15-yard penalty and the attention of the league office. The two-time Pro Bowler claimed, however, that he was not attempting to injure Sullivan.
