Did Ndamukong Suh kick Ryan Fitzpatrick in the head? (Video)
Questions are being asked once again of Ndamukong Suh after he seemed to kick Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick’s helmet off during Sunday’s game in London.
Suh was in pursuit of Fitzpatrick, who was making a run to the sideline. With Fitzpatrick down on the ground, Suh ran toward him, but his left leg caught Fitzpatrick in the head, knocking his helmet clean off. You be the judge of whether it was intentional or incidental.

Suh’s reputation precedes him – this year alone he’s already been accused of kicking Alfred Morris in the head as well – and it’s very easy to see why this is being looked at as more than an inadvertent collision. The pulling back of the left foot is definitely a red flag here, and there’s definitely some force behind it as well. Some will argue that he’s just trying to avoid tripping over Fitzpatrick, but if that’s the case, why the kicking motion? Expect to see this video analyzed and dissected for days to come, and we’ll see what the NFL offices think of it.
