Ndamukong Suh Will Appeal Two-Game Suspension

As expected, Ndamukong Suh will appeal his two-game suspension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Detroit Lions lineman was suspended earlier on Tuesday for stomping on Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith during Thursday's game.

Ndamukong Suh knows he made a mistake, but he has been encouraged by NFLPA and Roger Goodell to appeal 2-game suspension and he will.

Suh reportedly called NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Sunday to apologize about the incident. He also apologized for his milquetoast postgame comments in which he attempted to pass the incident off as simply losing his balance.

Whether or not the appeal is successful, though, Suh should be able to play on Sunday when the Detroit Lions play at the New Orleans Saints. Appeals generally take about 10 days to be sorted out and players do not have to serve their suspensions during the appeal. Assuming Suh can play on Sunday, he could still miss a home game against the Minnesota Vikings and potentially a road game against the Oakland Raiders on Dec. 18. Either way, he should be back on the field in time for the Lions' two final games, the last of which is at Green Bay on Jan. 1.
