Suarez added his second, Jon Walters replied before Daniel Sturridge ended a seven-week spell out with an ankle sprain to add the fifth right at the end.
"I don't think he's in that bracket. Goodness me he is a young boy who gets kicked left, right and centre and we got good fortune," Rodgers said.
"The defender doesn't make contact with the ball but does the man and Raheem is running at such speed.
"He is a fearsome competitor and he is not that type. He has had many decisions gone against him in his young career, ones where he has had dead-cert penalties.
"I don't think he has gone down easily. Contact was minimal but the pace he is going at puts him over."
Rodgers was delighted to see Suarez and Sturridge resume their formidable partnership, which produces a goal from one or the other every 56 minutes on average, to lift his side back into the top four.
"Daniel has pace and power on the counter-attack and both combined very well," he added after the Reds' first league win at Stoke in just over 29 years.
"Both are outstanding talents - you can see that from their link-up for both Luis' second goal and Dan's movement for Luis to play him in (for the final goal) was exceptional in such a short space.
"Sturridge showed great skill and awareness to get up and have two touches to finish the game (after Jack Butland had brilliantly stopped his initial effort).
"To get the fifth goal here really shows that threat we have."
