Suh's latest incident under league review

DETROIT — Ndamukong Suh might've gotten himself in trouble with another nasty play.

Suh's illegal low block Sunday in Detroit's game against Minnesota will be reviewed for potential discipline, NFL spokesman Randall Liu said Monday in an email to the Associated Press.

The NFL Network reported late Monday that it's unlikely Suh will be suspended.

Suh, a Lions defensive tackle, hit Vikings center John Sullivan during an interception return, and the penalty against him negated a touchdown during Detroit's 34-24 win. Suh said he wasn't going after Sullivan's knees, adding the two talked about it at halftime.

"I spoke to him, we're good," Suh said after the game. "So that's all that matters."

On Monday, Sullivan said: "He apologized and said there was no intent to injure. It's fine."

Minnesota defensive lineman Jared Allen said Sunday: "I got to know Suh at the Pro Bowl last year, and he's a good dude, but that's uncalled for."

The NFL fined Suh $30,000 last year because he kicked Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. Suh was suspended two games in 2011 after he stomped on the Packers' Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Gabbert out: The Jaguars ruled Blaine Gabbert out for Sunday's game at Oakland after the quarterback sliced open the back of his throwing hand against the Chiefs. Chad Henne will start, and newly signed Ricky Stanzi will back him up.

Miller's money: Von Miller's six-game suspension could cost the Broncos linebacker more than $2 million. He'll lose about $800,000 in salary and about $1.2 million in the prorated portion of his signing bonus after violating the substance-abuse policy, according to the collective bargaining agreement. The second figure could change via provisions of a confidential settlement his defense team reached with the NFL last month.

Fan death: Early indications suggested Kevin Hayes, 32, of Hayward, Calif., fell to his death accidentally at Candlestick Park during Sunday's 49ers-Packers game, San Francisco police Chief Greg Suhr said.

Cowboys-Giants claims: Owner Jerry Jones accused the Giants of faking injuries in the second quarter of Dallas' 36-31 win. "It was so obvious it was funny," Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The Giants denied it, with coach Tom Coughlin saying, "It's absolutely not true." Also, X-rays showed no structural damage on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's injured ribs.

Harbaugh's dig: Jim Harbaugh offered a parting shot at Packers linebacker Clay Matthews: Slapping is not the tough-guy way. The 49ers coach said Matthews threw one punch and slapped 49ers left tackle Joe Staley when they tussled after Matthews' late hit on quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the second quarter of San Francisco's win against Green Bay on Sunday. "If you're going to go to the face, come with some knuckles, not an open slap," Harbaugh said. "I think if that young man works very hard on being a tough guy, he'll have some repairing to do to his image after the slap."

New back for Giants? Tom Coughlin said he isn't ready to give up on running back David Wilson, who fumbled twice and was later benched during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. But the coach confirmed the team was going to be looking at other running back options, a group that reportedly will include former Giant Brandon Jacobs, former Bronco Willis McGahee and former Jet Joe McKnight.

Dolphins: Tom Garfinkel, a former executive with MLB's Padres, was introduced as president and chief executive officer of the team and Sun Life Stadium. He succeeds Mike Dee, who replaced Garfinkel in July as Padres president and CEO.

Panthers: Starting right guard Garry Williams (torn left ACL and MCL) is out for the season.
