Detroit Lions defensive tackle earned the fifth fine of his NFL career Wednesday after a kick to Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub during last week’s Thanksgiving game.
Suh will shell out $30,000 for the a kick to Schaub’s midsection, that he called “inadvertent.”

Here is a video of the incident:
