We probably won't know Ndamukong Suh's fate until Monday or Tuesday, but that doesn't mean it's still not one of the biggest stories of Week 12. Suh, one of the Lions' best players, was ejected from the Thanksgiving Day game against the Packers for stomping on Green Bay guard Evan Dietrich-Smith's arm.

On Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Suh is expected to be suspended for at least two games. 

Is Ndamukong Suh dirty?

After the his ejection Thursday, Suh offered up a lame excuse for his actions before apologizing a day later on his Facebook page.

Suh said he's now ready to move on from the incident.

"I want to reiterate my commitment to working to become a better player, and professional—on and off the field. My reaction on Thursday was unacceptable. I made a mistake, and have learned from it. I hope to direct the focus back to the task at hand — by winning," Suh wrote on Facebook.

But it's not enough to just say you're sorry and you're ready to get on with the rest of your life. In addition to how severely the NFL will punish him, there are also concerns in the Lions' locker room about Suh's antics. Specifically, some of his teammates are also tired of it. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora confirmed as much during Sunday's NFL GameDay Morning.

"The interesting thing, there are people in his own locker room that think [a suspension's] called for," La Canfora said.



Does a reported two-game punishment fit the crime? No idea. (Worth noting: CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman warns that, given NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's history of suspending players, we shouldn't expect a huge punishment for Suh.) But if it's to the point where Suh's teammates are fed up, then maybe a stiffer sanction will have a better chance of getting through to him, and in his words, help him "to become a better player, and professional—on and off the field."

I appreciate the NFL history prowless on past incidents some of you have posted, but.  As fans of the game,  regular people who look forward to the (clean) sunday fight. We need to make our voices heard! Suh on my team..... NO FREAKIN way! Lets get this one right! Hammer him..but do give him a chance to right his ship! You bet but No more lyes , propaganda and bull crap.  Then we will see if he is destined for greatness.

Just think, the more games he's suspended the more money it may save him from being fined for his antics on the field!  What a tool!

The NFL's punishment for his stupid antics is not going to deter him from doing anything stupid again BUT if the Lions themselves were to bench him, that will speaks volume to him and the team. It will show that the team does not accept his behaviors and will not tolerate his bad judgements so far in his professional career. They need to let him understand that his bad judgements is effecting the team and he needs to learnt he is not a one man show.
