The Pittsburgh Steelershave filed a complaint with the NFL and asked the league to review a play at the end of Sunday's game in which Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh kicked quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's leg, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

In the play in question, Suh is engaged with Steelers guardDavid DeCastroand then kicks out his right leg and makes contact with Roethlisberger's right leg. The Steelers sent video of the play to the NFL, the newspaper reported, citing a source.

"I'm not sure what he was thinking," DeCastro said, according to the newspaper. "You'd have to ask him what he was thinking. I heard Ben saying 'He kicked me,' but I didn't really see it until we watched the film."

Roethlisberger injured his left knee during Sunday's game and could miss four to six weeks after having surgery for a torn meniscus, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Wednesday.

Roethlisberger suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday's 30-15 loss to the Dolphins. He missed one series and then returned to play the entire second half, finishing 19-of-34 for 189 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
