Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has decided to appeal his two-game suspension. The NFL announced the suspension earlier today, and he wasted little time in deciding to appeal it. Interestingly enough, Adam Schefter reports that the NFLPA and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell encouraged him to appeal the punishment.
Jason La Canfora reports that Suh will not practice or be at the Lions' facility while his appeal is being examined. All indications are he will miss Sunday's game against the Saints, so even if his appeal is successful, chances are he will be out this week.
If Suh's punishment is lightened at all, in all likelihood it would mean that he could play against the Minnesota Vikings next week. The Lions need him more for Sunday's game against the Saints, but I suppose getting him back for the Vikings game is better than having to wait until the Raiders game.
