Detroit defensive end Ndamukong Suh is shrugging off the suggestion that he is a dirty player. He told reporters Monday he will consider himself a dirty player only if his mom says he is.
Suh got in a scuffle with Patriots lineman Logan Mankins during
Detroit's 34-10 preseason win Saturday night.
The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year was fined $20,000 this preseason after roughing up Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. And he was fined twice last year for hits on Chicago's Jay Cutler during the regular season and Cleveland's Jake Delhomme in a preseason game.
Suh wasn't flagged for the incident with Mankins. He says he doesn't know why someone might be fined for defending a teammate.
