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.
