Ndamukong Suh got caught up in the moment and his paycheck is a little lighter because of it. Early in the second quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday, Suh burst through the Bucs offense line and dropped running back Bobby Rainey for a three-yard loss. The star defensive tackle celebrated the play with a quick throat-slash gesture, an action the league banned in 1999. The league fined Suh $7,875 for the gesture, his third fine this season. He had previously been docked $100,000 for an illegal low block against Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan in Week 1 and $31,500 for roughing Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden in Week 6.
