NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke out on today about the latest case involving Lions DT Ndamukong Suh.
The Commish says that it’s not easy to try and judge on if Suh tried on purpose to kick Texans QB Matt Schaub in the *ahem* groin area during Thursday’s OT loss to Houston.
Goodell met with reporters before speaking at a Lions charity event Tuesday night, a day after the league decided it wouldn’t suspend Suh.
Goodell says he hasn’t spoken to Suh about the play but that the league’s football operations staff is in the process of speaking to the player about it. Goodell says the league will decide whether Suh will be fined within the next few days.
Suh was on his chest after being taken down by an offensive lineman last Thursday and extended his left foot to hit Schaub below the belt.
From the replays, it’s hard to see just how Suh COULDN’T be trying to kick Schaub, but then again, in the heat of the moment, it’s anyone’s guess.
