Lion’s Suh suspended for stepping on Rodgers

Ndamukong Suh is in trouble with the NFL again.

The Detroit defensive tackle was suspended for this Sunday’s wild-card playoff game against Dallas for a violation of safety-related playing rules against Green Bay in the season finale.

The league announced Monday that Suh was suspended for stepping on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ left leg twice, once with each foot. Suh also applied pressure and pushed off Rodgers’ unprotected leg with his left foot, violating unnecessary roughness rules, the league said in a statement.

Suh, who will be reinstated Monday, can appeal the suspension within three days. He can ask for an expedited appeal, which would be heard by Ted Cottrell, a hearing officer for the NFL and players’ union. No hearing is scheduled, but one could happen as soon as Tuesday.

Rodgers had an agitated look after the incident, and Coach Mike McCarthy said after the game: “There’s no place for that. I don’t understand it, frankly.’’
