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."

Report: Ndamukong Suh to be suspended 2 games

He should Man-Up and apologize in real life in front of a camera and not hide behind his Facebook page.
How lame is that''''''''''''''''

Didn't he just meet with Goddell in New York a few weeks ago about this type of behavior as well.

He need a 4-5 game suspension to make it hit home.

Let's see if Goddell is man enought to give him more then 2.

New Yawkers are small, angry people. No sympathy earned, none given. And to clear the record on your shitty memory,the Pistons went through both the Lakers and the Celtics on the way to back to back titles.

Suh has road rage or the NFL equivalent steroidal rage. Have you ever got cut-off on the raod and go hog wild and try to chase down the car at crazy speeds?.That is Suh on a football field. Most of us realize that its dumb to try and catch a bad driver so we resume our normal lives and cuss the idiot. Suh has no such control so he rips helmets off(heads) and stomps on people cause he feels like he was wronged. If Suh gets doubled or cut or dragged down then he loses it but his violence on the field is ok. Two games and 100 grand. That still won't adress his emotional problems.

WOW, I hadn't gotten a chance to watch the replay again and I must say that it is just totaly and completely....STUPID! I'm not sure what he thought he was going to achieve there, but that guy has got some issues! I'll be the first to say that I am a huge Lions fan and actually just bought a Suh jersey a few weeks ago because I do appreciate the mean streak that he has broought to this down trodden orginization! My jersey is now hanging in the back of my closet and honestly, I'm not sure I'll put that one back on. It pisses me off too because I almost bought a CJ jersey instead. I might just throw it on ebay and see if I can recoupe the money I paid for it rather than just let it collect dust in my closet. Anyway, I'm not sure 2 games is enough and to be very honest I wish it was no games! And thats just me selfishly wanting the Lions to win and make the playoffs, but even if it meant that we don't make the playoffs he should probably sit the rest of the year!! GO LIONS
