NFL suspends Ndamukong Suh for 2 games

The hammer dropped on Ndamukong Suh this morning as the NFL informed the Detroit Lions defensive tackle he will be suspended for the next two games without pay.

Suh has been suspended by the league after being ejected from the Lions’ loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day. Early in the third quarter, Suh slammed the helmet of Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith into the turf three times and when he got off the opponent, Suh stomped on him.

It would not be surprising if the league also requires Suh to take some type of anger management classes but no word on that yet. Fox’s Jay Glazer first reported the suspension.

Suh can appeal the suspension but the guess here is he would have a difficult time winning. The Lions play at New Orleans on Sunday and host the Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 11. Detroit’s playoff hopes have faded some in recent weeks. The Lions have lost two of their last three games.

The suspension will cost Suh $164,000 in game checks. Suh called NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to apologize on Sunday night and he went to New York to meet with the league about what he believes was unfair discipline last month. It’s more than fair this time around.

Suh will not be permitted to practice or visit the Lions' facility during his suspension, which begins immediately.
