Ndamukong Suh Suspended 2 Games After Stomp
The NFL has suspended Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for two games without pay for his stomping incident in last Thursday’s Week 12 home loss to Green Bay Packers, FOX Sports Jay Glazer first reported via Twitter. According to Glazer, the Lions were informed of that decision by Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday.
Pending appeal, it means Detroit will be without Suh for Sunday’s night critical game in New Orleans against the Saints. He would also be in line to miss Week 14′s home division game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Suh was ejected in the third quarter of the frustrating Thanksgiving defeat for stepping on Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith. He apologized for the incident after the game and reportedly reached out to Goodell on Monday night to appease the Commissioner. But as a repeat offender and with an offense that had a precedent in a similar incident involving fellow defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, there was little chance that Suh wouldn’t have received a multiple-game ban.
