Lions coach Jim Caldwell didn’t want to delve too deeply into the topic, but said he planned to talk to defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh about Friday night’s late hit on Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne.
“Just like I address everything else,” Caldwell said, via Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com. “We don’t cut any corners, we don’t pull any punches. We talk about the issue, we talk about what needs to be straightened away, like most families would do.
“We don’t dance around issues and I think we can get them corrected that way.”
People have tried talking to Suh about it before. The league sent director of football operations Troy Vincent on a visit of repeat offenders this offseason, and Suh was first on his list.
“It’s a league issue and I think it’s been handled very well,” Caldwell said. “I think they’ve handled it very well. I think they’ve talked about it at length and we’ll leave it at that.”
Whether anyone can get through to Suh remains to be seen, since multiple fines haven’t modified his behavior yet.
