Ndamukong Suh Returns From Suspension; Lions Release Jovan Haye

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's suspension ended on Monday, meaning he was allowed back at the team facility after a two-week-long absence. Suh met with Jim Schwartz, who declined to discuss what they talked about. He did, however, say that Suh is excited to be back and is ready to play.

"He's, obviously, healthy, looked good. He's excited to be back and focused on the Oakland Raiders," Schwartz said Monday, via the Free Press.

Interestingly, Suh's roster exemption doesn't expire until Wednesday, according to Dave Birkett. This means the Lions technically don't have to clear room on the roster for Suh until tomorrow, although it appears they have opened up a spot by releasing defensive tackle Jovan Haye. Nothing officially indicates that Haye is the one being let go to make room for Suh, but it makes sense considering they play the same position.

The Lions also may have to clear room to add more help in the secondary if Aaron Berry's shoulder injury is bad enough to keep him out this week. If Chris Houston is also unable to play, the Lions would be extremely thin at cornerback, so it wouldn't be too surprising if Brandon McDonald is brought back.
