Larry Fitzgerald clears Ndamukong Suh on facemask jab

I didn't see it as the game was going on live, but I had more than one person point out to me the video of Rams defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh sticking his finger inside the facemask of Larry Fitzgerald during Sunday's game post-play.

It didn't look great, but at the same time, Fitz didn't react all that upset -- other than apparent surprise and irritation right at first. It was a good question to ask Fitz when the wide receiver talks on Thursday. But Fitzgerald made sure that was unnecessary, tweeting out Wednesday morning that the video just showed "a friend clowning with another friend. No negative intent!"

It's hard to imagine someone trying to jack up Fitz's eye anyway; if there is any player who garners respect from seemingly every single player in the NFL, it's Fitz.
