DETROIT — 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.


Cleveland Browns

BEREA, Ohio — Browns outgoing president Mike Holmgren says he still has not decided if he will coach in the NFL again.


Holmgren is leaving the Browns this week after initially planning to stay until the end of this season. Holmgren said after weeks of meetings with new owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner he has decided the time was right and feels he has passed the baton. Holmgren says he departs feeling somewhat unsatisfied because he wasn't able to finish the job of turning the Browns into winners.


Holmgren adds he will return to his home in Arizona this week and contemplate his next move.


New Orleans Saints

METAIRIE, La. — The NFL will not be suspending Saints starting defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley for his kick to the back of offensive lineman Alex Boone's helmet in the final minutes of San Francisco's 31-21 victory over New Orleans on Sunday, a person familiar with the situation said.


The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the league has not announced any punishment and a fine is still possible later in the week.


The decision not to suspend Bunkley means he can play when the Saints visit Atlanta on Thursday night.


Bunkley was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and ejected with 1:05 left for kicking Boone after the Saints had blocked a field goal.


That's out of character for Brodrick Bunkley. It really is. One of the best people in this building, Saints defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said. I haven't looked at it but if you had asked me who would be one of the last people to have that happen to them, it would be Brodrick Bunkley, so I'm sure it won't happen again.


San Francisco 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams said Monday he will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee sustained in Sunday's win at New Orleans.


Williams posted on his Twitter account that he has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the knee. Surgery would be the likely next step.


Regret to inform y'all I will be out for the season with a torn ACL, Williams tweeted. Not how I saw things playing out. This is just another obstacle I will have to climb to get back. Looking forward to the challenge!! Love all true fans your prayers are much appreciated.


Coach Jim Harbaugh provided no updates Monday, but did say it appeared Williams was hurt before any contact was made when his foot stuck in the ground.


Williams and running back Kendall Hunter both were hurt on the same play during the second half of Sunday's 31-21 win over the Saints.


Chicago Bears

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears guard Lance Louis will miss the remainder of the season because of a knee injury, a big blow to a struggling offensive line.


The team placed him on injured reserve on Monday, a day after he was hurt in the 28-10 victory over Minnesota.


Louis was injured early in the third quarter on what Bears coach Lovie Smith says was an unnecessary hit by the Vikings' Jared Allen. It happened after Chicago's Brandon Marshall tipped a pass from Jay Cutler.


The Vikings' Antoine Winfield picked it off, and as he returned the interception, Allen launched himself at Louis for a blindside hit to the head. His left leg buckled as he crashed to the ground.
