Ndamukong Suh ejected for stomping on Packers lineman

Detroit Lions

Ndamukong Suh has developed a reputation around the NFL as a dirty player. He earned it Thursday.

Suh was ejected in the third quarter of the Lions’ Thanksgiving Day game against the Packers for shoving the head of Green Bay lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith into the turf, then stomping on Dietrich-Smith’s arm. The infraction also came with a personal-foul penalty, which gave Green Bay a first down at the Lions’ 1 after Detroit had held the Packers on a third-and-goal.

Here’s the video of the play that led to Suh’s disqualification:
Given Suh’s history — he’s been hit with numerous fines since coming into the league last year — the possibility of a suspension is definitely there. Albert Haynesworth was suspended five games back in 2006, when he was with the Titans, for stomping on the face of Dallas’ Andre Gurode.

Suh doesn’t figure to be hit with that big of a punishment, but it seems very likely that the Lions’ defensive tackle will have to sit out at least Detroit’s Week 13 game in New Orleans.
