Suh Step

Ndamukong Suh was suspended for the Lions' playoff game after stepping on Aaron Rodgers' leg during Detroit's loss to the GREEN BAY PACKERS yesterday. The statement released from the NFL is interesting.

I'm not convinced that the action in and of itself was enough to warrant a suspension for a playoff game. But I do think context has to be thrown out to a certain extent. Shouldn't matter if it was Week 17 or a preseason game, just like it shouldn't matter if it was a rookie lineman or a league MVP. But, Suh's track record speaks for itself, and the suspension certainly furthers the NFL's stance that it wants to do all it can to protect its players.
