DETROIT -- Ndamukong Suhs latest controversial play drew a hefty fine. cheap jerseys from china . The Detroit defensive tackle was docked $100,000 by the NFL for his illegal low block on Minnesota centre John Sullivan in the Lions season-opening victory Sunday. Suh hit Sullivan during an interception return by Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy, and the penalty negated what would have been a touchdown. NFL spokesman Randall Liu said Tuesday that vice-president of football operations Merton Hanks notified Suh of the fine. Suh was not in the locker room at Detroits practice facility when it was open to reporters Tuesday. A text message was sent to him seeking comment. Suh said Sunday he wasnt going after Sullivans knees, adding that the two had discussed the play at halftime. Detroit players said Suh apologized to the team Tuesday. "He just basically said that he cant make those types of mistakes -- he cant put us in a position where weve got to battle back from mistakes like that," wide receiver Nate Burleson said. "He also said, with him having a target, and people looking for him, theyre looking at us in the same light. So as a team weve got to understand that the microscope is on us." Its believed to be the largest fine for an NFL player for an on-field violation, although suspensions without pay can result in bigger financial hits. The NFL fined Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison $75,000 for a 2010 hit on Cleveland wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, although that was later reduced to $50,000. Like Harrison, Suh has a history of fines. The NFL fined Suh $30,000 last year for unnecessary roughness when he kicked Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. He was suspended two games in 2011 after stomping on Green Bays Evan Dietrich-Smith. Burleson was taken aback when told of Suhs fine. "Oh, baby! For real? Are you serious? A hundred stacks?" Burleson said. "Thats one of the biggest Ive heard of, but when you have a guy who people look at as quote-unquote dirty, a play that might not be as dirty could be deemed as such, and youre going to have to deal with the consequences. So its tough. I hope he appeals it, because I dont think that was worthy of being fined $100,000." Suh has also been fined in previous seasons for roughing up quarterbacks Andy Dalton, Jay Cutler and Jake Delhomme. "He plays with such aggression," Lions centre Dominic Raiola said. "He really plays hard, and plays to the whistle every play." When asked what he would think if a player with a track record rolled up on his knees and was fined $100,000, Raiola was unsure. "I dont know if he really went down," Raiola said. "I think he kind of hit him on the hip and fell. ... Thats out of my hands." Suh was named a defensive captain for the Lions this season, and theyre hoping his fourth year as a pro will be a productive one. Raiola said Suhs talk with the team Tuesday was a good step. "Thats all part of his leadership role this year," Raiola said. "We respect that, and Im just glad were not losing him for any games." cheap jerseys .

"I think people know that," Melvin said Thursday. Melvin confirmed Greinkes availability in comments to USA Today and Milwaukees WTMJ radio earlier Thursday.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies chances of making the playoffs are nearly impossible, but they havent given up on the season. Domonic Brown hit a game-ending RBI single to give Philadelphia a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night. The Phillies scored two runs in the eighth and two more in the ninth for their second come-from-behind win in as many days. They have won four of five to improve to 4-3 under Ryne Sandberg, who became the interim manager when Charlie Manuel was fired last Friday. "Were just out there having lots of fun, feeding off the energy we have in the clubhouse," Brown said. "Were trying to make a statement going into next year." Colorado carried a 4-3 lead into the ninth, but Rafael Betancourt (2-5) blew a save opportunity for the second straight game and the third time in 19 chances. "That was a tough loss," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "The Phillies kept fighting." Jimmy Rollins started the winning rally with a two-out double. He then stole third and scored on Michael Youngs slow roller to third that went for a hit. Young had the game-winning hit off Betancourt in Philadelphias 4-3 win on Wednesday night. "Were deep back in the standings, but five weeks is a ton of time to play good baseball," Young said. "Everybody looks forward to the opportunity to show what they are made of." Betancourt departed after Youngs at-bat with an elbow injury, heading to the dugout after a visit from Weiss and a trainer. The right-hander had lunged for Youngs grounder that went just out of his reach. After the game the team said he sprained his right elbow. Jeff Francis came in and walked Chase Utley before Browns grounder to right scored Young. Brown was mobbed by the Phillies, who took three of four games from the Rockies for just their second series win since the All-Star break. "Theres a sense in the games," Sandberg said, "that good things can happen with the positive energy and the guys pulling for each other." Before its recent winning stretch that began with Sundays victory over the Dodgers, Philadelphia had lost 21 of 25 games. "It was a very difficult stretch," Youngg said, "but we flat-out knew we were better than that and we look forward to showing that. nfl jerseys china. " Cesar Jimenez (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the victory. Wilin Rosario homered for Colorado, which has dropped five of six. The Rockies have won nine of 39 games against Philadelphia since the start of the 2008 season. Darin Ruf homered and Carlos Ruiz had three hits for the Phillies. Colorado rookie Chad Bettis allowed one run and six hits over 5 1-3 innings in his fifth career start. He was in line for his first win before Philadelphias late rally. "The first one is never easy and you can never count the other team out," Bettis said. "I felt real good tonight. Everything was working pretty well. I had better location than my last start. I had the same stuff but my command and location were better." Cody Asche doubled home a run in the second for Philadelphia, but Dexter Fowler had a tying sacrifice fly in the fifth. The Rockies then scored three runs in the sixth on four straight hits, chasing right-hander Kyle Kendrick. Rosario had the big blow, a line drive to left for a three-run shot. It was the third homer in the last four games for Rosario, who extended his hitting streak to 13 games. "Hes been swinging the bat well for a few weeks," Weiss said. "Hes an impact offensive player." The Phillies pulled within one on Rufs two-out, two-run homer off Matt Belisle in the eighth. Kendrick continued his recent struggles. The right-hander avoided his third straight loss, but he gave up four runs and eight hits in five-plus innings, raising his ERA to 8.14 in his last six starts. NOTES: Michael Cuddyer and Troy Tulowitzki each had a pair of hits for the Rockies. ... Ruiz is batting .625 (10 for 16) in his last five games. ... Colorado opens a three-game series at Miami on Friday night, with Rockies RHP Jhoulys Chacin (11-7, 3.24 ERA) opposing RHP Tom Koehler (3-8, 4.66 ERA). ... The Phillies open a three-game set at home versus Arizona on Friday night. LHP Cole Hamels (5-13, 3.61 ERA) gets the ball for the Phillies, with LHP Wade Miley (9-8, 3.56 ERA) going for the Diamondbacks. cheap jerseys ' ' '
