Pittsburgh Steelers File Complaint Claiming Suh Kicked Roethlisberger (Video)
The Pittsburgh Steelers are upset after Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh appeared to kick quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in his knee during the fourth quarter of last Sunday’s contest.
Roethlisberger had to leave earlier in the game and when he returned, Suh appeared to take a shot at the quarterback’s right knee while being blocked by offensive lineman David DeCastro. Roethlisberger told his teammates later about Suh kicking him.
The Steelers have filed an official complaint with the NFL, asking them to review this play:
“I’m not sure what he was thinking,” DeCastro said when asked about Suh’s kick, according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “You’d have to ask him what he was thinking. I heard Ben saying he kicked me, but I didn’t really see it until we watched the film.”
