No Suh For You — Detroit Lions Lineman Suspended For Cowboys Playoff Game
It is tough enough that the Detroit Lions will play their first playoff game in three years on the road against the red hot Dallas Cowboys. Now, they will have to do it without the services of one of their best defensive players. Tackle Ndamukong Suh was suspended by the NFL for one game today for stepping on the calf and ankle of Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rogers in the fourth quarter yesterday. The Packers won the game 30-20 and the NFC North Division title, but Suh's loss will hurt the Lions' defense on Sunday. Tony Romo has been picking apart opposing teams' pass defenses all season, and the Suh's 8.5 sacks and intimidating presence will no longer be a factor against the Cowboys.
