$100,000? Vikings coach Les Frazier trusts NFL on Ndamukong Suh fine for illegal hit on Sullivan

SHARE $100,000? Vikings coach Les Frazier trusts NFL on Ndamukong Suh fine for illegal hit on Sullivan

Was the NFL’s $100,000 fine for Ndamukong Suh’s low hit on Vikings center John Sullivan appropriate? After yet another egregious offense, some felt a suspension is the only way to get Suh’s attention. But Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said he had no problem with the NFL’s punishment. Sullivan suffered only a bruised knee on the play, Frazier said.

‘‘That’s what the league decided and that’s what it is,’’ Frazier said Wednesday morning in a conference call with Chicago reporters. ‘‘So that’s what they decided.’’

But did the hit warrant a suspension?

‘‘I’m just happy that John Sullivan is healthy and will be able to play this ballgame [Sunday against the Bears at Soldier Field],’’ Frazier said. ‘‘He’s a little sore. He suffered a knee contusion from that play. But just very, very thankful that we didn’t lose him for an extended period of time.’’
