2 of 2

Suh released his own statement on his Facebook page, essentially stating that he knows he was wrong after all.

"In the past few hours, I have had time to reflect on yesterday’s game and I want to sincerely apologize for letting my teammates down, the organization, and especially to my fans who look to me for positive inspiration. Playing professional sports is not a game. It is a profession with great responsibility, and where performance on and off the field should never be compromised. It requires a calm and determined demeanor, which cannot be derailed by the game, referee calls, fans or other players. I want to reiterate my commitment to working to become a better player, and professional — on and off the field. My reaction on Thursday was unacceptable. I made a mistake, and have learned from it. I hope to direct the focus back to the task at hand — by winning."

The Lions franchise also issued a statement and it was the same old song and dance, stating they don’t condone Suh’s behavior but they would will not punish their star defensive player.

But in todays’ image concious NFL there is certain to be some sort of punishment handed down by commisioner Roger Goodell, and most think it will come in the form of a large fine and suspension.

New Orleans host the Lions in a week thirteen prime time game, and Suh’s status is unclear as he awaits word from the league about this latest incident.
