DETROIT (AP) -- Ndamukong Suh might lose some money for his low blow against Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.

The Detroit Lions defensive tackle, though, will be able to play Sunday at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted Monday that the Lions have been notified that Suh won't be suspended for last Thursday's "incident," though it will be reviewed for a potential fine.

Suh was on his chest after being taken down by an offensive lineman and extended his left foot to hit Schaub below the belt. Suh's left cleat connected with Schaub's groin area after he threw a pass in the first quarter of Houston's 34-31 overtime win.

Schaub went to his knees, doubled over in pain, but stayed in the game.

The fan was quickly surrounded by New Jersey state troopers and led away. He did not appear to be hurt in the fall from the lowest level of seating at MetLife Stadium, a distance of about 10 feet or less.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots lost their second defensive end in nine days when Jermaine Cunningham was suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay's porous secondary took another hit when cornerback Eric Wright was suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Rex Ryan anticipates Tim Tebow will be "ready to go" in the New York Jets' next game against the Arizona Cardinals in spite of the backup quarterback's two broken ribs.

The Jets coach said the team will see how Tebow does during the week.
