The NFL will review plays from all Week 12 action next week, including the stomp by Ndamukong Suh that led to the Lions' defensive tackle being ejected against Green Bay on Thursday, according to NFL.com.
After repeatedly shoving Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith's head into the turf following a play, Suh then stomped on him.and was ejected.
Suh claimed his actions were not as dirty as they appeared. He said he was trying to free himself from Dietrich-Smith and the kick was an attempt to get his balance.
"I understand in this world because of the type of player and type of person I am, all eyes are on me," he said. "So why would I do something to jeopardize myself and jeopardize my team first and foremost? I don't do bad things and I have no intention to hurt somebody."
Dietrich-Smith wasn't sure what Suh's intentions were but he was sure that it wound up helping his team.
"It's a battle out there," he said. "It's not a slap and tickle game. You go out there, play hard, hit each other and stuff just happens. They ended up taking a penalty and it ended up hurting their team as a whole."
Several other Packers said after the game that they weren't surprised by the undisciplined actions of the Lions or Suh.
"He's been getting dumb penalties all year," Packers guard T.J. Lang told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel of Suh. "That's something we talked about all week. They were probably going to do something stupid along the way. They've done it almost every game."
