ALLEN PARK, Mich., Oct. 16 (UPI) -- The NFL fined Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh $31,500 Wednesday for a late hit on Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden, the team's Web site reported.

Suh did not draw a penalty for his hit on Weeden during Sunday's 31-17 Detroit victory, but a review of the blow by league officials determined it was directed at Weeden's head.

It was the second major fine for Suh this season. He suffered a $100,000 reduction in his paycheck for a low block thrown on Minnesota center John Sullivan while an interception was being returned by teammate DeAndre Levy.

The Detroit Free Press reported Suh's career fines total has reached $209,000. He was also suspended two games during the 2011 campaign for intentionally stepping on the arm of Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Suh, in his fourth NFL season, was the second player chosen overall in 2010.
