Last but not least, Ndamukong Suh shows for workouts

He didn’t make it until the final day of workouts for the Detroit Lions, but he made it.

Ndamukong Suh, the dominant defensive tackle who easily won defensive rookie of the year honors in 2010, showed up on Friday to work out with his teammates.

After a hectic offseason, which began with shoulder surgery that prevented him from playing in the Pro Bowl, Suh arrived Friday.

“It was something I wanted to do and the timing of my schedule worked out so I could at least make one,” Suh told the Associated Press.

Suh spent time in Europe as he participated in the Gumball 3000 – a car race across the continent that lasts a week. He has been working out at Nebraska some too.

“It's unfortunate that I couldn't make it more (to workouts), but I was traveling back from Europe and I didn't want to be sluggish for the earlier workouts, and I went to Nebraska to take care of my shoulder," Suh said. "My shoulder is doing great.”

The Lions had a good turnout for their player-run practices and their talented defensive front got better when the team drafted Auburn’s Nick Fairley in the first round. It’s expected he will be paired next to Suh. Hopefully, they’ll be able to get together in a timely fashion during training camp next month.
