Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald moved quickly Wednesday to squelch the notion that Ndamukong Suh had malevolently poked him in the eye during the game between the Cardinals and Rams on Sunday.

Although there were cries for action against Suh on social media, Fitzgerald tweeted that it was just video of “a friend clowning with another friend.” In fact, he added, there was “no negative intent! It’s all love.”

Fitzgerald added, “I’ve known Ndamukong Suh since his college days and he’s a close friend of mine. Quality as a person matches his quality as a player.”
