Suh: My feet were numb, didn't know I was stepping on Rodgers
In his successful appeal, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh claimed his feet were numb "and he couldn't tell the difference between [Packers quarterback] Aaron Rodgers' feet and the ground," reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
It seems Suh's explanation might have helped him get on the field for Sunday's playoff game at Dallas.
Rodgers expressed skepticism about Suh's intentions before the appeal ruling. "If you step on something in your everyday life, or if you step on somebody on the field, the first reaction seems to be looking back and maybe apologizing with your hands," Rodgers told 540 ESPN in Milwaukee. "Or pulling your foot back right away. And I'm just not sure that's what happened."
Asked about the incident at a press conference Wednesday, Suh repeatedly said: "Next question."
The Lions are 7-point underdogs at Dallas, with most observers giving them a better chance at the upset thanks to Suh's presence.
