Report: NFL cuts Tom Lewand's suspension

Lions President Tom Lewand will be back at work today.

Tim Twentyman of the Detroit News reports that Lewand, who started serving a 30-day suspension three weeks ago, has been notified by the NFL that his suspension has been reduced by nine days.

Lewand, who pleaded guilty to a charge of impaired driving, was suspended for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. He was also fined $100,000.

According to Tom Kowalski of, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reduced the suspension because Lewand is taking “all the necessary steps” that the NFL laid out for him.
