Ndamukong Suh knows at this point he’s a marked man. At the same time, he’s not sure what he can do about it.
After Colts guard Mike McGlynn accused him of celebrating over injured Colts tackle Winston Justice, Suh shrugged when discussing it with reporters.
“It’s not that I expect it, necessarily, but if it comes up it’s like another day, another walk in my life,” Suh said, via Chris McCosky of the Detroit News. “It’s something I am going to have to deal with and move forward from.”
The league cleared Suh for the shot on Justice, which came after an interception. McGlynn said Suh was dancing over his fallen teammate, though it’s hard to find video evidence of it.
“Since Sunday there’s been tremendous accusations, a lot of things said about me and the particular play that happened between me and Winston Justice,” Suh said. “I am the type of person that would never celebrate anybody being injured. I was celebrating my team playing well. . . .
“I feel bad that it’s even something I had to deal with, but it is what it is. I’ve been an easy target for negative things. I understand it’s part of my life and I am moving past it.”
Of course, as tempting as it is for Suh to make himself a martyr, the reality is he’s brought this kind of scrutiny upon himself by his own actions, and he’s going to have to accept the attention that comes as a result.
