              === Suh won't be suspended for Thanksgiving kick ===
 
 New York, NY (Sports Network) - The NFL announced on Monday that Detroit Lions
 defensive  tackle Ndamukong  Suh will not receive a suspension for his kick to
 Houston  Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on Thanksgiving Day, though the league
 did not rule out fining the controversial lineman for his actions.
 
 Suh,  who  has a well-documented history  of on-field rules violations and was
 handed  a 2-game ban  last season for stomping on the arm of Green Bay Packers
 offensive  lineman Evan  Dietrich-Smith  during a  2011 Thanksgiving  matchup,
 kicked  Schaub in the  groin while falling to the ground during a pass rush in
 the first quarter of Thursday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Texans.
 
 Replays  were  inconclusive  in  determining  whether  or  not  the  move  was
 intentional, however, which likely factored into the NFL's decision.
 
 "Our  office  has notified  the  Lions  that Suh  will  not  be suspended  for
 Thursday's  incident."  NFL public relations  spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted on
 Monday. "It will be reviewed for a potential fine."
 
 Suh, voted the league's dirtiest player in a recent poll taken by the Sporting
 News,   has  been  fined  numerous  times  by  the  league  for  flagrant  and
 overaggressive  play  during his three-year  career. His most notorious moment
 came  during Thanksgiving of last season, when he pushed Dietrich-Smith's head
 to  the  turf and  deliberately stepped  on his arm  in a nationally televised
 clash with the Packers.
 
 The  2010  NFL Defensive Rookie of  the Year was immediately ejected from that
 game and forced to sit out two others without pay.
 
 Suh  also incurred a $20,000 fine for an illegal hit on Cincinnati quarterback
 Andy  Dalton during the 2011 preseason and was fined twice for unsportsmanlike
 conduct during his rookie campaign of 2010.
