Ndamukong Suh Suspended Two Games Without Pay For Stomping Packers Player

The Detroit Lions have been informed that DT Ndamukong Suh has been suspended two games for stopping on a Green Bay Packers lineman last week, FOX's Jay Glazer reports. It was expected that Suh would receive at least a two-game suspension for his actions. Glazer reports he will not be paid in those two games. The Lions face the Saints and Vikings in the next two weeks.

Suh was tangled up with Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith in last week's game and after pushing Dietrich-Smith's head into the ground, Suh got up and quickly stomped on Dietrich-Smith's arm. Suh was ejected from the game by the refs at that point. Here's a photo and video of the stomp.

It had been previously reported that the league might make Suh go through anger management classes but that's not part of the discipline from the league, Glazer reports.

The two-game suspension isn't excessive, in my opinion, considering Suh has been fined multiple times and leads the league in personal fouls since entering the NFL. Given his past history, we knew something like this was the next step.

It also doesn't help that immediately after the game on Thanksgiving Suh didn't show any remorse instead trying to justify his actions. He has since apologized publicly and reportedly called NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to apologize. Earlier this season he and the Lions coach had a sit down with Goodell to discuss his penalties.
