Report: Lions teammates worried about Ndamukong Suh
Even Detroit Lions’ players are starting to voice concern about defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh. Suh, a known psychopath, has reportedly been overly-aggressive with teammates during practice.
Per Mike Florio of NBC Sports:
During Sunday’s pregame show on FOX, Jay Glazer reported that Lions teammates have concerns about defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s ability to play within the rules.
“Even in practice, Ndamukong gives guys the business,” Glazer said. “He’ll slam a guy’s head against the ground. He’ll stomp on a guy. He’ll take little shots at guys. And guys are concerned if he can’t control himself even in practice with us, how can he control himself against someone else’s jersey?”
Suh’s history has been well documented, from his now famous stomp on Thanksgiving, to his kick to the groin of Texans’ quarterback, Matt Schaub, or even his recent chop block to Vikings’ offensive lineman, John Sullivan. A play than not only cost Suh $100,000, but also cost the Lions a defensive touchdown. Sullivan had no shot at catching DeAndre Levy on the play, but Suh decided to hit the center with an illegal chop block anyways.
You have this incredibly talented defensive player, who can literally change the pace of an opposing offense by himself, and then you have this constant concern that Suh will pull an ignorant stunt at any moment. Head coach, Jim Schwartz, is rapidly approaching a tough decision with Ndamukong Suh. What happens when he hurts a vital piece to Detroit’s offensive attack during practice, all because the guy has no concept of what is right and what is wrong? What then, Jim?
Suh is currently looking down the barrel of a one-game suspension if he decides to go all Jack Nicholson from The Shining during a game again. The reality of the situation is Suh needs to figure it out, or face being banned from the league permanently.
