After four days and six missed practices, former Husker Ndamukong Suh was on the practice field with the Detroit Lions and practicing with the first string. Suh flew from Nebraska to Michigan yesterday morning, signed his $68 million dollar deal, passed his conditioning test and was on the field.
Suh apologized for not being in camp at the start, but said he got a lot of support from his defensive teammates. Head coach Jim Schwartz was hopeful that Suh wouldn’t have missed time, and someone Suh figures to bump helmets with in practice had, what I wouldn’t call harsh words, but Lions’ center Dominic Raiola wanted to get his point across. He told NFL.com, that Suh should tell his agents to get something done. That was a couple of days ago. Yesterday, Raiola was satisfied. “That’s all I wanted. It was nothing personal toward him or anybody else. We drafted him high to help this team and I was anxious to get him in here.”
