NFL puts its foot down and sits Suh for two games
ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Ndamukong Suh’s stomp will cost him two games without pay. It may cost the Lions more than that.
The NFL suspended Detroit’s All-Pro defensive tackle on Tuesday for roughing Green Bay Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith in front of a national television audience during a loss Thanksgiving Day. Before the stomp, Suh shoved Dietrich-Smith’s helmet into the turf.
Suh will miss Sunday night’s game at New Orleans and a Dec. 11 home game against Minnesota, with the Lions desperately trying to keep pace in the NFC. He won’t be reinstated until Dec. 12.
Suh has three days to appeal the suspension.
It was the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year’s fifth violation of on-field rules in his first two years in the NFL.
He leads the league with nine personal fouls since 2010, according to STATS LLC.
