Ndamukong Suh sits down with Merril Hoge

By Kevin Seifert


Here is the online version of Merril Hoge's sitdown interview with Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Suh maintained that he has turned around his image since making a "horrible mistake" last season in stomping Green Bay Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith. He wouldn't speak extensively about an incident this season in which his foot hit Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin, but it's clear he doesn't view it as a blip in the process of "cleaning up my act."

Suh is appealing the $30,000 fine the NFL hit him with for the Schaub play but said: "I had honestly no control over what took place because I was being pulled down."
