Other than Albert Haynesworth, Commissioner Roger Goodell has not suspended any player more than one game for on-field infractions. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will be the second.
Per Schefter, a suspension of at least two games is “expected” for Suh.
Also expected, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, is a referral of Suh to anger management classes.
Anger management? It’s not like Suh punched a hole in the wall after someone hid his cell phone in the ceiling.
All (or at least some) kidding aside, it makes sense to ensure that Suh will avoid becoming enraged when exposed to the physicality inherent to the position he plays. Some have suggested that Suh has grown increasingly frustrated by the fact that he’s not nearly as dominant at the NFL level as he was in college.
Given that on the play that caused Suh to blow a fuse he was being manhandled by a backup guard, there could be something to that.
