UNDATED (AP) — The NFL has decided not to suspend Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM'-uh-kehn soo) for his actions against Houston quarterback Matt Schaub (shawb) in a Thanksgiving Day game. And a person familiar with the decision says 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 victory over New Orleans on Sunday. Both Suh and Bunkley still face fines for their actions.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay cornerback Eric Wright has been suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Wright issued a statement through his agent saying he took Adderall "at the end of July for health issues I was experiencing." Wright appealed the discipline, which was upheld by the NFL.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams says he will miss the rest of the season with a torn knee ligament suffered in Sunday's win at New Orleans. Williams posted on his Twitter account that he has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Surgery would be the likely next step.
