We will have to wait until Wednesday to hear what Ndamukong Suh has to say about moving on from his two-game suspension. The Lions were just glad to see him back in the building on Monday.
Far be it for me to tell somebody how to do their jobs, but I don't understand why the Lions media relations department wouldn't have made Ndamukong Suh available to us on Monday. He was in the building. We were in the building. He's going to have to address the media sooner or later -- Wednesday
Now that they've emerged from a two-game suspension of their best defensive player no worse for his absence, the Lions hope Ndamukong Suh's time away from the team turns into a positive.
Suh has one sure way to do it, and it has nothing to do with marketing or any endorsements that have made him one of the NFL's best known players. The Lions need a lift for their battered defense.

With Ndamukong Suh stomping on people, Brandon Pettigrew shoving officials and various others picking up personal foul penalties, Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham and head coach Jim Schwartz come under a bit of scrutiny for how they coach the young men in Honolulu blue.
It's a simplistic explanation for what's probably a more complicated problem, and...
The Detroit Lions are developing a reputation as the N.F.L.’s dirtiest team after a raft of reputation-tarnishing incidents, including the suspension of Ndamukong Suh.
Football is a tough sport, there is no getting around it. Many times it sucks to get hit, and then there are times where it really sucks to get hit. There are very rarely tackles that feel good in the NFL(that would probably be weird if they did), but there are certainly some players who dish out more punishment than others. With that in mind, here is a look at some of the hardest...
