Lions rookie DT Ndamukong Suh might have to pay his first-ever fine before playing in a regular-season game.

Suh grabbed Browns QB Jake Delhomme's face mask, twisted it, and slammed the QB to the ground Saturday night. The play occurred in the second quarter of the teams' third preseason game and Suh was assessed a 15-yard personal-foul penalty.

Browns coach Eric Mangini said Monday that he will ask the league to investigate the play. League spokesman Gregg Aiello said the play was being reviewed.

Browns backup QB Seneca Wallace said Suh should be suspended. Suh, the second overall pick in the 2010 draft, claims he had "no clue" Delhomme had gotten rid of the ball.
