PLAYERS: Ndamukong Suh
TEAMS: Detroit Lions

Via It's Always Sunny In Detroit:

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh recently joined efforts with diving champ Greg Louganis to help Louie Anderson from the pool during a taping of 'Splash', an upcoming ABC reality TV show that pits celebrities against one another in various diving competitions. 

According to TMZ, the comedian and former "Family Feud" host “was practicing his dives on Wednesday when he became a little too bushed to pull himself up the ladder ... falling back into the water again and again.” 

Suh and Louganis lifted the struggling Anderson up the ladder before he coughed up water for “several seconds." And here Lions teammates are concerned Suh might hurt himself diving. How about playing the role of a crane?

As far as Suh goes, this news is atypical from the other times he's made headlines in the past. His play on the field has earned him a reputation as a dirty player, most notably his 'stomp' on an opposing player on Thanksgiving in 2011, and a questionable kick to Texans QB Matt Schaub's groin on year later that earned the Lions star a $30,000 fine from the NFL. Suh has made news off the field, as well, for being involved in multiple car accidents over the last two years.

NFL Pro Bowl Fail: League puts wrong Lions logo on Pro Bowl jerseys
