Report: Ndamukong Suh called Roger Goodell to apologize

Discipline for Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is expected to be handed down on Tuesday.

And Suh, who released an apology for his actions in Thursday’s game, reached out to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Sunday night. Accoding to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Suh called Goodell to apologize for his actions. He was ejected after he slammed the helmet of Green Bay Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith into the turf three times and then stomped on the player.

Suh visited NFL offices last month to talk to Goodell about discipline, and now he’s likely to find out what it feels like. The NFL typically imposes suspensions early in the week so a team can make plans to be without a player. Suh could learn that he has been suspended on Tuesday. Telling Goodell he is sorry is a sign Suh realizes he was wrong. But the NFL needs to take action and when will Suh apologize to Dietrich-Smith?
