It looks like Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh can expect to be suspended two games for his actions during Thursday's Packers game. During The NFL Today's pregame show, James Brown asked NFL insider Charley Casserly if there was any indication of Suh's behavior coming out of Nebraska.
|Is Ndamukong Suh dirty?|
"I talked to general managers and scouting directors over the weekend and they me absolutely there were red lights at Nebraska and even before that that did not surprise them when they see Suh behave like this in the NFL. …
"Furthermore, when the league goes in to decide how long to suspend -- if they're going to suspend Suh -- one of the things that will work in Suh's favor is that he was ejected from the game … so he has a little bit of time served already. … Comissioner Goodell, in his tenure, has suspended five players. Only one of them, Albert Haynesworth, was suspended for more than one game.
"Finally, the Detroit Lions are going to lose something here too. Suh's salary is a little over $82,000 per week. If he's suspended for more than one game that means the total fines for the year for the Lions will be over $100,000. There's a new rule in the league: over $100,000 and the team has to pay it. So now what happens? The Lions will have to pay if Suh is suspended for one game."
As for what punishment Suh should face: "I think he should be suspended two games."
