Lions' defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will reportedly not be fined for his hit on Bears' quarterback Jay Cutler during Detroit's Monday night loss to Chicago.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will reportedly not be fined for his hit on Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler during the Lions 13-7 loss to the Bears, according to Pro Football Talk. The hit briefly knocked Cutler out of the game, and appeared to diminish his effectiveness throwing the ball in the second half. Here's another look at the hit:

Suh has earned a reputation for being a dirty player during his brief NFL career, but he has said that he doesn't care and that being called a dirty player doesn't hurt his feelings. He also claims that he checked on Cutler after the play to see if he was alright:

"There were no harsh words between us," Suh said. "I wanted to make sure he was good. I’m never a person to injure anybody and take anybody out of the game.

Suh had a sack and one tackle in the game, and has 3.5 sacks and 11 tackles on the season through six games. He's nearly matched his total of four sacks from 2011, a disappointing tally considering he had 10 as a rookie in 2010.
