Just three weeks into the NFL preseason, we were finally treated to the Ndamukong Suh that we all know and love. Tonight, as his Detroit Lions take on the Jacksonville Jaguars, Suh got down and dirty against Jags quarterback Chad Henne.
And as you know, when you put the word “dirty” anywhere near Suh’s name, there is probably a late hit involved, and in this case, that is exactly what happened.
In the first quarter, watch in the GIF below from SB Nation as Suh absolutely nails Henne with a shot that was clearly late, and will more than likely find him in some more hot water with the NFL offices in New York.
Yeah, it’s pretty clear that the hit was late and there could be some financial consequences coming the defensive tackle’s way.
But what might be more interesting to watch is how new head coach Jim Caldwell handles something like this. He’ll certainly be asked about it, however as opposed to his predecessor Jim Schwartz, Caldwell tends to not take things like this lightly.
Still, we will have to watch in the coming days and see if anything comes out of this. Well actually, how much will come out of it, because you know Roger Goodell does not like to ignore Mr. Suh.
