Ndamukong Suh Expected To Be Suspended At Least Two Games, According To Report

Ndamukong Suh, the Detroit Lions' violent yet effective defensive tackle, is expected to be suspended at least two games for the stomp on Packers' lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving Day, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Suh has been vilified for his actions, and rightly so, and the precedent is there for a multiple-game suspension, based on Albert Haynesworth's five-game suspension for stomping on Andre Gurode in 2006. Although Suh didn't open up any stitches on Dietrich-Smith, and Suh has said he didn't intentionally stomp on his opponent, anyone who saw the video can see that what he did deserves a suspension.

Speculating about duration and gravity of punishment is rarely accurate, but Schefter must know something, as, despite his employer, he's one of the most well-sourced, well-respected journalists in football. Lions fans shouldn't expect the leader of their defense back anytime soon, which could spell doom for their playoff hopes.
