Ndamukong Suh is immediately appealing the two-game suspension the NFL handed down for his Thanksgiving stomp.
Suh, who has a history of dirty plays, was seen pushing down the dead of Green Bay Packers' offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith, and then stomping on his right arm.
The Lions' defensive tackle was ejected from the game, and the Lions were hit with a 15-yard penalty. The appeal will go to former Raiders' coach Art Shell, who is a joint appointee of the NFL and the players' association for such cases.
The NFL has not announced when the appeal will be heard, but a source told the Associated Press that there would be a hearing.
The 2010 Defensive rookie of the Year called Commissioner Roger Goodell to apologize on Sunday. For now he is barred from practice and the team's facility.
In the short time Suh has been in the NFL, he as garnered the reputation for unnecessary rough plays. Last season, in a preseason game, he grabbed quarterback Jake Delhomme's facemask, and then yanked him to the ground.
He was also fined for a hit on Chicago's Jay Cutler. In a preseason game earlier this season, Suh grabbed Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton and threw Dalton to the turf after he had gotten rid of the ball.
Suh was also accused of taunting quarterback Matt Ryan when the quarterback suffered a serious leg injury.
Several players have spoken out about Suh's rough tactics, and it seems likely he won't win his appeal. Goodell has a track record of cracking down on harsh behavior.
