Ndamukong Suh suspended 2 games
 
1 Attachment(s)
Ndamukong Suh stomped an opponent on the arm, and for that the Lions’ playoff chances have taken a punch to the gut.
The NFL informed the Lions today that it has suspended Suh two games for stomping on Green Bay Packers lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith during last week’s Thanksgiving Day loss.
The suspension is without pay, so Suh will forfeit $165, 294 the equivalent of 2/17ths of his base salary.
"If appealed, an expedited hearing and decision would take place this week in advance of this weekend's games," a statement from NFL said.
Suh was ejected from Thursday’s Lions-Packers game after he stomped on Dietrich-Smith’s right arm early in the third quarter. The penalty gave the Packers an automatic first down, and Green Bay scored a touchdown two plays later.
Suh apologized to his teammates, coaches and fans in a post-game press conference, saying he was just “trying to remove myself from the situation” and his stomp was unintentional. About 29 hours later, he said his reaction was “unacceptable” but never apologized to Dietrich-Smith.

Great player, but the Lions are probably as deep at DT as any team in the league. It won't be a huge loss for their D-line.

basically 2.5 games... seems about right.

of course, after our game Sunday, WGaS?

Yep. I fully expect Suh to appeal and play against us on Sunday night then serve his suspensions if it stays at 2 games against the Raiders and Vikings.

Cool. Presuming his appeal fails, he will miss the Saints game meaning he can't go all thuggo on Brees or one of our lineman, which is good.

The league is saying they'll review the appeal prior to our game Sunday night in the article ...

He has 3 days to file an appeal so once he files for an appeal they have up to 10 days to hear it so I doubt they hear it on Friday. He'll play against us.

I just read the league said they'd expidite an appeal and rule before this Sunday's game.

good- league finally got one right, at least from the timing standpoint.
He'll either have it knocked down by one game or not, but he'll miss our game either way

As a football fan, I was looking forward to seeing Suh/Fairley go up against Nicks and Evans. That's a great match up.
