Detroit Lions Issue Statement on Ndamukong Suh's Ejection

The Detroit Lions have issued a statement regarding defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s despicable actions during Thursday’s Thanksgiving matchup against the undefeated Green Bay Packers.

The on-field conduct exhibited by Ndamukong Suh that led to his ejection from yesterday’s game was unacceptable and failed to meet the level of sportsmanship we expect from our players. Ndamukong has made many positive contributions to the Lions on and off the field. We expect his behavior going forward to consistently reflect that high standard of professionalism. We have been in contact with Commissioner Goodell’s office and were advised that, like any on-field matter, Thursday’s incident is subject to review by the league office and that subsequent discipline would be determined by the league office.

What the Lions should do, before the league office makes their decision, is suspended Suh for a game. If the team takes matters into their own hands, perhaps Commissioner Goodell would be a little lighter on the punishment. The Lions did get one thing right, however. Suh’s actions were unacceptable.
