Giants' offensive lineman pokes fun at Suh's excuse for stomp

Wednesday December 31st, 2014

New York Giants offensive guard Geoff Schwartz poked fun at the reason reportedly given by Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for stomping on the leg of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Sunday.

Suh reportedly told the NFL during his suspension appeal hearing that his feet were so numb during the game at Green Bay that he couldn't tell the difference between Rodgers' leg and the frozen ground.

Schwartz isn't alone in not buying the reason -- NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted Wednesday that arbitrator Ted Cotrell, who heard Suh's appeal did not accept the DT's numbness argument.

Still, Suh's original one game suspension for the stomp was overturned and changed to a $70,000 fine on Tuesday.
