NEW YORK, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh won't be suspended for a kick to the groin of an opposing quarterback, league officials said Monday.

NFL Senior Vice President of Communications Greg Aiello indicated on his Twitter account Suh could, however, be fined after the lineman's foot struck the groin of Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub during the Lions' 34-31 overtime loss Thursday.

"Our office has notified the Lions that N Suh will not be suspended for last Thursday's incident. It will be reviewed for a potential fine," Aiello wrote.

Suh was being hauled down during a pass rush when he made contact with Schaub. The blow sent the Texans signal-caller to the ground in pain.

The Lions player was suspended two games last year trying for to injure Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith by stomping on his arm.

Asked on KILT-AM, Houston, Monday if he would want Suh as a teammate, Schaub said, "No, you don't want a player like that. The stuff that he stands for and the type of player he is, that's not Houston Texan-worthy."
