ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM'-uh-kehn soo) says he didn't kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on purpose.
That's why Suh insists he doesn't need to apologize to Schaub.
Suh spoke to reporters Wednesday for the first time since his left cleat connected with Schaub's groin area in Detroit's loss to Houston last Thursday.
Suh has dodged another suspension from the league for his latest questionable move on the field.
His reputation, though, has taken another hit.
The NFL suspended Suh for two games last season after he stomped on Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith in a Thanksgiving game. Suh said he was sorry to Dietrich-Smith.
