Should Suh Be Suspended? Updated: Yep

The video is of Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions stepping on Aaron Rodgers of the Packers.
It shows that Suh stepped on Rodgers 2 times and Suh never looked down or turn around to see what or who he stepped on.
The play was also a touchdown play on Rodgers pass.
Update from ESPN:
The Detroit Lions and Ndamukong Suh have been informed that the defensive tackle will be suspended for this weekend's wild-card playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Suh's punishment comes a day after he stepped on the leg of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Suh "unnecessarily stepped on [the] opponent's unprotected leg as he lay on the ground unable to protect himself," according to a statement released by the NFL.
Suh is appealing the suspension and his appeal will be heard by Ted Cottrell.
If Suh's appeal is denied, it would mean Detroit would be without both of its first-round defensive tackle selections. Coach Jim Caldwell said Monday it would take "a miracle" for defensive tackle Nick Fairley to play against the Cowboys. Fairley has not played or practiced since injuring his knee against Atlanta in Week 8.
Good bye to a dirty player for at least 1 game.
