According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, a woman from a one-car accident that Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was involved in, is suing him for $1 million in a Oregon court.
“A passenger in a one-car accident involving Ndamukong Suh last December is suing the Detroit Lions star defensive tackle for more than $1 million in Oregon court,” reported Birkett.
“In a complaint filed today, Saadia Van Winkle alleges Suh engaged in negligence, reckless driving and intentional infliction of emotional distress after he crashed his 1970 Chevrolet Coupe into a curb, light pole, drinking fountain and tree in the early-morning hours of Dec. 3 while he was serving a two-game suspension from the Lions,” wrote Birkett.
“Van Winkle’s attorney, Sarah Nelson, said her client suffered neck and back injuries in the accident and has a scar from a laceration above her eye that required stitches,” Birkett wrote.
It looks like the Lions just can’t seem to stay out of the news this year.

Ndamukong Suh is being sued for just more than $1 million by a woman who claims she was injured in a December car crash in Oregon involving the Detroit Lions' star.
Saadia Van Winkle accuses Suh of negligence, recklessness and intentional infliction of emotional distress in the suit, which her attorney says was filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court.
Police said Suh was not...
Remember that nasty car accident Lions star Ndamukong Suh had while serving a two-game suspension last December? There were two passengers in the car at the time of the event and each had a different version of the events of the crash. The female passenger, Saadia Van Winkle, claimed to have suffered injuries and stated that [...]
Who are your real friends?
That is something that athletes should always ask themselves before they allow them in their car. I am not saying Mrs. Van Winkle (yes she is married) didn’t get a bump or a bruise, but I am pretty sure she didn’t get a $1 million bump.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Bad decisions in real life can lead to bad decisions at crucial times on the football field, too.

Before Lions players headed out on their own following...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best has been put on the active physically unable to perform list. Best didn't play last season after a concussion suffered in a game against San Francisco on Oct. 16. He also had concussion problems last preseason and when he was a college player at California.

With this being the fourth training camp under coach Jim Schwartz and coordinators Scott Linehan (offense) and Gunther Cunningham (defense), most of the system installation work is done and the Lions can use training camp to focus on a couple of weak spots from last season.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Ndamukong Suh has Hall of Fame potential, but will he fulfill it?
He appeared to be on the fast track during his rookie year only to take a step back last season.
How he performs in this his third year quite possibly will indicate which is the real Suh, and whether hes going to live up to the hype generated by being the No. 2 pick overall in the 2010 Draft.
The Detroit Lions have signed former New York Jets cornerback Justin Miller as they try to fill a position weakened by their dismissal of the legally challenged Aaron Berry and the loss to injury of Chris Greenwood.
The Lions said Wednesday that they signed Miller and cut wide receiver Marcus Harris.
Miller was drafted by the Jets in 2005 and last played for the team in 2009.
On Tuesday, Detroit discarded OT Johnny Culbreath, who was replaced with the addition of Jonathan Scott. On Monday, the Lions let go of projected starting cornerback Aaron Berry following his second arrest of the offseason.
And on Wednesday, the team picked up two replacements at cornerback—both ex-Jets—Justin Miller and Drew Coleman.
