Former Husker and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is expected to be suspended at least two games for shoving Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith’s head, stomping on him and then not owning up to it in his post-game comments during the Lions loss to the Packers on Thanksgiving Day.
The league is expected to meet again Monday before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell comes to a final ruling on Tuesday. With Suh having been fined at least three times for a total of $42,500 since the start of his rookie season, and with fines not working, a suspension is the next likely step. Suh makes $82,000 per game. If he’s suspended two games, he would lose $164,000 in salary.
