• Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh appears to be in the clear for his big hit on quarterback Jay Cutler in Monday's 13-7 Bears win. A league spokesman said the play was legal, and Cutler said on his weekly radio show on Chicago's WMVP-AM (1000) that the play was “clean” and Suh is “a good player.”

I'm surprised that James Harrison didn't get fined for Suh's "hit". I don't even call it a hit; it was a pretty effective tackle for the position Suh was in
