BBAO: Matt Schaub on Ndamukong Suh

By Kevin Seifert

We're Black and Blue All Over:

We could spend all day analyzing the various tentacles emerging from Thursday's wild game at Ford Field, but at least one of them figures to be a storyline for the next few days as the NFL investigates. As the NFL Network's Albert Breer noted, the league almost certainly will look into a play that ended with Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's left foot hitting the groin of Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the first quarter of the Texans' 34-31 overtime victory.

Schaub offered only a curt comment to reporters when asked several times about the incident and whether he thought it was intentional. "I really don't have anything to say about that play or that person," Schaub said.

As we discussed Thursday, there was a lot of gray area in the play. Suh was falling onto his right side as his left leg swung wildly. He never looked at Schaub, but his left leg extended toward him after initially falling away. As always, stay tuned.
