NFL notebook: Suh's illegal low block against Vikings under review

| Monday, Sept. 9, 2013, 8:48 p.m.

Ndamukong Suh might've gotten himself in trouble with another nasty play on the field.

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

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 Sunday's game. “So that's all that matters.”

Minnesota defensive lineman Jared Allen said there's no place for that type of hit.

“I got to know Suh at the Pro Bowl last year, and he's a good dude, but that's uncalled for,” Allen told reporters Sunday in Detroit.

Miller suspension costly

Von Miller's six-game suspension could end up costing him more than $2 million.

He'll lose about $800,000 in salary and approximately $1.2 million more in the prorated portion of his signing bonus that he'll have to forfeit for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, according to the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Both NFL spokesman Michael Signora and Miller's agent, Joby Branion, said they couldn't discuss Miller's case.

Raiders going with Pryor

Raiders coach Dennis Allen knows who his starting quarterback will be this week.

Jeanette native Terrelle Pryor answered all questions in the season opener with his game-breaking running ability and vastly improved passing that almost helped Oakland pull off a shocker before losing, 21-17, at Indianapolis.

Allen is all in with Pryor heading into Sunday's home opener against Jacksonville.

Injury won't sideline Romo

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo should be able to keep playing through a rib injury suffered against the New York Giants.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the quarterback will be sore, but that X-rays were negative and he wouldn't miss Sunday's game at Kansas City.
