In an interview on 97.1 “The Ticket” Tuesday morning, Lions coach Jim Schwartz said the team will have to deal with and get past the two-game suspension handed down by NFL on defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
“Everybody is responsible for their actions and accountable for it,” Schwartz said. “The league has decided to suspend him two games and that’s something we have to deal with and we have to live with. We have to find a way to get past it.
“It’s there, it’s happened, we need to be accountable for it. We need to move on and we need to get ready for the Saints”
Schwartz said the decision to appeal the suspension is up to Suh and his support staff and has nothing to do with the him or the club.
“That’s not our decision as a club,” Schwartz said. “That’s something within the CBA and the NFLPA and things like that. That’s up (to) Ndamukong and his agent and DeMaurice Smith (NFLPA president) and those people.”
Schwartz also said the team will be fine with Sammie Hill, Nick Fairley and Andre Fluellen filling in for Suh.
