Report: Lions' Ndamukong Suh plans to appeal 2-game suspension
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh plans to appeal his two-game suspension for stomping on a Green Bay Packers offensive lineman, according to a report on ESPN.
According to the ESPN report, Suh was encouraged to appeal his suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell -- the man who handed down the punishment.
The suspension is without pay, so Suh will forfeit $165,647 -- two-seventeenths of his $1.405-million base salary.
The Lions also are in line to be fined $50,000 for exceeding $100,000 in fines as a team (with a maximum of $50,000 per incident). Team fines are handed out after the season, after all appeals are exhausted.
