The Detroit News

Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is used to hitting quarterbacks. Wednesday, he apparently was hit by the NFL with a $20,000 fine.

In Friday’s exhibition game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Suh slammed quarterback Andy Dalton to the turf after Dalton released a pass in the first quarter.

Suh posted on Twitter Wednesday: “$20,000REALLY??? #NFL #BIGFAIL”

Last season, Suh got a $7,500 fine for a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme during an exhibition matchup and $15,000 for hitting the Chicago Bears’ Jay Cutler during the regular season.
