For the second time in his career Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been fined for an illegal hit on a Browns quarterback. This time it was $31500 for a first-quarter hit on Brandon Weeden during Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Lions. The first time it was $7500 for picking up Jake Delhomme and tossing him down like a ragdoll during a preseason game in 2010. Suh has now been fined a total of $209000 and docked another $165294 for his two-game suspension for stomping on a player on Thanksgiving Day 2011. Suh wasn't flagged for the hit which occurred just after Davone Bess dropped a short third-dow pass late in the first quarter. But NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said Tuesday in a video on nfl.com that Suh "lowered his head'' when he speared Weeden in the chest. Suh didn't even know the NFL was reviewing the play but wasn't surprised to receive his seventh career fine. “I think there’s always going to be a microscope on me” Suh told the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday. “I think there’s been a microscope on me since I was first drafted in 2010 ’cause I was a first-round pick. There’s always going to be a microscope on me no matter where it is from outside media from the NFL to little kids to everybody. So there’s going to be somewhat of a microscope. My face is out there. That’s kind of part of life.” On a conference with Browns media last week Suh showed no remorse for his first six offenses.
