Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will not go to New York to discuss his on-field behavior with NFL officials during his team's bye week but will talk to the league in a video conference scheduled for Thursday, sources told ESPN's Merril Hoge.

Suh had said last week that he was unsure whether he would travel to New York this week. He received an invitation to visit the league through Lions general manager Martin Mayhew.

Suh went to New York to meet with the NFL during the Lions' bye week in 2011 after racking up $42,500 in fines from when he was drafted to that meeting, which reportedly was at Suh's request.

Since that meeting, he has been suspended two games for stomping on Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and fined for hits to Matt Schaub last season and to John Sullivan and Brandon Weeden this season.

His hits to Sullivan and Weeden have resulted in $131,500 in fines.
