Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh Will Appeal Suspension

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh has decided to appeal the two-game suspension he received today from the National Football League.

Suh was suspended without pay for stomping on Green Bay Packers lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith’s arm on the nationally televised Thanksgiving Day game.  Suh was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct as the Lions went on to lose 27-15. The 24-year-old did not immediately apologize for the incident in post-game interviews.

“I don’t do bad things and I had no intention to hurt somebody,” Suh said to reporters after the game. “If I want to hurt somebody, I’m going to hit his quarterback.”

He has since made an apology on his Facebook page.

The defensive tackle has compiled nine personal foul penalties, $47,500 in fines, and $165,000 in lost salary in the past two seasons as a result of his aggressive style of play.
