Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh could be in trouble with the league again after the cleats on his left shoe connected with the groin area of Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub during the first quarter of the Texans’ 34-31 overtime victory over the Lions on Thursday in Detroit.
It wasn’t clear on replays whether it was intentional, but …
Last year on Thanksgiving, Suh was ejected for stomping on the right arm of Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and was suspended for two games.
Suh has been fined in previous seasons for roughing up quarterbacks Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton, Chicago’s Jay Cutler and Cleveland’s Jake Delhomme.
“I really don’t have anything to say about that play or that person,” Schaub said.
Suh was on his chest, taken down by an offensive lineman, when he extended his left foot below Schaub’s belt. Suh didn’t talk to reporters after the game.
LISTEN, AND LEARN
The next time a flight attendant asks Leodis McKelvin to turn off his cellphone on a plane, the Buffalo Bills cornerback says he’s going to listen.
McKelvin apologized on Thursday after confirming he had been ticketed $75 for refusing to follow a crew member’s order during a flight from New York to Buffalo on Tuesday.
“Yeah, you’ve got to know what you’re doing and who you are. You’ve got to do what you’re basically told,” McKelvin said. “It was a misunderstanding. I apologized for it, and I’m going to pay the fine, pay my dues for what I did.”
According to a Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority police report, McKelvin refused to comply with a request to turn off his cellphone and place the bag that was under his seat into an overhead compartment. He was fined upon arriving in Buffalo.
McKelvin, the Bills’ 2008 first-round draft pick out of Troy, was named the AFC’s special teams player of week after scoring on a 79-yard punt return in a 19-14 win over Miami on Nov. 15.
EAGLES TO GO WITH FOLES
Nick Foles will make his second consecutive NFL start, at home against Carolina on Monday night, because Michael Vick is still recovering from a concussion, a league source said.
Foles took all the practice repetitions Wednesday with Vick sidelined and unable to partake in any strenuous activity.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said Vick was still in Phase 1 of the league’s protocol for returning from a concussion. The Eagles coach added that Vick was “getting close to Phase 2,” which would involve exercise challenges.
Vick is scheduled to undergo another impact test sometime this week, Reid said. He had one on Monday but remained below the baseline, according to the Eagles. Once Vick passes the test he will be examined by team doctor Peter DeLuca and an independent neurologist before he’s cleared to play.
Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (strained right hip), cornerback Orlando Scandrick (left hand) and linebacker Bruce Carter (left elbow) were knocked out of Thursday’s game against Washington by injuries. … The Jets signed wide receiver Jordan White and cornerbacks Donnie Fletcher and Darrin Walls from the practice squad. … The Patriots released wide receiver Greg Salas and activated rookie offensive lineman Markus Zusevics to the 53-man roster from the reserve/non-football injury list. … The Chargers say Sunday’s home game against the Baltimore Ravens will be blacked out in Southern California because more than 9,000 general admission tickets remained unsold 72 hours before kickoff.
