Ndamukong Suh Returns To Detroit Lions Following Suspension

Ndamukong Suh had to sit out two games for stomping on the arm of a Green Bay Packers player during the Detroit Lions annual Thanksgiving game, despite appealing the suspension with the NFL league office. The defensive tackle was able to return to practice this week following the end of the suspension.

Suh was back at practice on Monday and, according to Jim Schwartz, the second-year pro is a bit reformed following the punishment.

"I'd be very surprised if it showed up on his radar again," Schwartz told the Detroit Free Press. "He's a very prideful person. He wants to do anything he can to help the team, so I would be surprised if something like that happened again.

"He's, obviously, healthy, looked good. He's excited to be back and focused on the Oakland Raiders."

Suh's return comes at a good time for the Lions as they continue to fight for a spot in the playoffs as fellow defensive linemen Lawrence Jackson and Nick Fairley deal with injuries.
