Houston (CBS Houston) – The NFL fined Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh $100,000 Tuesday for his illegal low block on Vikings center John Sullivan this past weekend.

NFL’s vice president of football operations and former player Merton Hanks determined the fine amount and notified Suh that he was going to receive the largest fine in NFL history.

Suh was called for a personal foul on Sunday during the second quarter of the Lions’ season opener. It was when he went at Sullivan’s knees during a DeAndre Levy interception return that the infraction happened, which subsequently cancelled out the Lions’ touchdown.

Suh has been fined five times with the amounts totaling $77,500 in his NFL career, one being last Thanksgiving against Houston Texans’ quarterback Matt Schaub.

It’s being reported that Suh received this hefty fine due to being a repeat offender.
