NEW YORK — The NFL confirmed the $31,500 fine handed down to Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for his hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden last Sunday.
Since Detroit selected Suh with the No. 2 pick in 2010, he has been fined seven times for more than $200,000. The Associated Press reported the fine for this hit, for which he was not penalized in the game, on Wednesday.
Suh was fined $100,000 for an illegal block on Minnesota center John Sullivan in Week 1 during an interception return. The Detroit player lost an appeal last week, upholding the largest fine in NFL history for on-field conduct, not counting suspensions.
Other fines announced Friday:
• Washington linebacker Perry Riley was fined $15,750 for his hit on Dallas quarterback Tony Romo last Sunday. Riley’s hit came after Romo threw a pass in the first quarter, and he was called for a personal foul in the Redskins’ 31-16 loss.
• New England linebacker Brandon Spikes was docked $10,500 for a violation of the league’s uniform policy. He wore “dominantly red shoes” in the Patriots’ win against New Orleans. Also from that game, Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins was fined $15,750 for his hit to the head of Patriots wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins in the third quarter.
• Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley was also fined $15,750 for hitting Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs in the head and neck area while blocking him in the first quarter. He was not called for a penalty.
• Three Arizona Cardinals players were also fined. Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett was fined $7,875 for striking an opponent late, safety Tyrann Mathieu was fined $7,875 for grabbing an opponent and unnecessarily throwing him to the ground, and defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu was fined $10,000 for kicking an opponent.
