Ndamukong Suh Releases Statement on Yesterday's Incident

Minutes after the Detroit Lions released a statement regarding Ndamukong Suh’s personal foul and ejection in yesterday’s game, Ndamukong Suh released a statement of his own via his facebook page:

In the past few hours, I have had time to reflect on yesterday’s game and I want to sincerely apologize for letting my teammates down, the organization, and especially to my fans who look to me for positive inspiration.

Playing professional sports is not a game. It is a profession with great responsibility, and where performance on and off the field should never be compromised. It requires a calm and determined demeanor, which cannot be derailed by the game, referee calls, fans or other players.

I want to reiterate my commitment to working to become a better player, and professional—on and off the field. My reaction on Thursday was unacceptable. I made a mistake, and have learned from it. I hope to direct the focus back to the task at hand — by winning.
