A day after his one-game suspension for stomping on the leg of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was reduced to a $70,000 fine, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh wasn't quite in the mood for answering questions at his press conference. 

According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Suh talked for seven minutes on Wednesday, but answered "Next question" 10 times and said "I'm focused on Dallas" or something similar 12 times.

In his appeal of his suspension, Suh reportedly told the NFL that his feet were so numb from the cold that he couldn't tell the difference Rodgers' leg and the frozen ground. The NFL didn't quite buy it, and Suh understandably was not willing to talk about it on Wednesday.

Perhaps Suh was just taking a page out of RGIII's playbook.
