From Jay Glazer:
Lions have been informed by league office that Ndamukong Suh has been suspended by Commissioner 2 games without pay.
Suh IS allowed to appeal and if he does there would likely be an expedited hearing before he misses this week's game.
Suh reportedly phone NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this week to apologize for his actions during the Thanksgiving game between the Lions and the Packers.
By all accounts, Suh has not reached out to Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith to offer an apology.
UPDATE: The league makes it official.
NFL Vice President of Football Operations Merton Hanks notified Ndamukong Suh today that he has been suspended without pay for the Lions’ next two games for his unsportsmanlike conduct in the Lions-Packers game on Thanksgiving Day. It was Suh’s fifth violation of on-field rules in the past two seasons that has resulted in league discipline. Suh may not practice or be at the team practice facility for any other activities during the two-game suspension. He will be reinstated on December 12. Under the CBA, the suspension may be appealed within three business days. If appealed, an expedited hearing and decision would take place this week in advance of this weekend’s games.
