Ndamukong Suh had a monster hit last night on Brandon Marshall’s good friend and teammate Jay Cutler. Marshall saw it as dirty. Suh said it was a “simply a football play.”
Marshall took to Twitter after the game to vent about the hit.

From The Detroit Free Press:
Suh flushed Cutler from the pocket, wrangled him by the left arm and flung him hard to the ground, bending him over his left leg.
Bears trainers attended briefly to Cutler on the field as Suh leaned in to make sure he was all right.
Cutler eventually walked off under his own power, missed one play, returned, then went to the locker room for another series to have his ribs examined.
He returned in the second half and finished 16 of 31 passing for 150 yards.
“I thought it was gone and then he got a hold of me,” Cutler said. “At that point, I knew it wasn’t to end well.”
Cutler said he felt “all right” after the game, but admitted playing with the injury was “tough.”
