Where in the world is Ndamukong Suh? Allen Park -- maybe.
Suh skipped the Detroit Lions' voluntary minicamp last month, and he has been absent from voluntary workouts as well. However, it appears that Suh may be in town, and it appears that he may be working out with his teammates at the Lions' facility in Allen Park. This is based on what Lions undrafted free agent Justin Jackson said in a story on yourdailyjournal.com (via Michael Rothstein).
Jackson admitted he has been a little star-struck during the workouts as veteran players like Ndamukong Suh, Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush have made appearances. He had to remind himself he faced similar players every Saturday in the ACC.
With the lack of a direct quote mentioning Suh, it's not 100 percent clear if he's actually at the workouts. However, the author of the story about Jackson got the impression that Suh is in fact there.
@kmeinke Justin may have been talking generally when he said he was star-struck when he mention Suh, but it sounded like he was there— Shawn Stinson (@scgolfer) May 14, 2014
Last week, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew indicated that Suh would be back at the Lions' facility in mid-May, so this news fits that timeline. What's more, organized training activities are scheduled to begin next week for the Lions, so it's possible that Suh could be back in town to get ready for the first set of OTAs.
UPDATE: It looks like Suh might not be taking part in the workouts after all.
For those who've asked, I'm told Suh still isn't at #Lions voluntary workouts. Expect he'll be there for OTAs later this month as his custom— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) May 14, 2014
