Lions Release Statement on Ndamukong Suh Ejection

The Detroit Lions released an official statement late Friday on the Ndamukong Suh Thanksgiving Day game incident

"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."

Ndamukong Suh is looking at a fine from the NFL and a possible suspension after further review by the league. However, news on that likely won't come until at least Tuesday after all of the Week 12 games are complete.
