Share This Story


Police in Oregon say Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh crashed his car into a tree in downtown Portland early Saturday morning but was not injured.

Police say Suh was not impaired and was cooperative with officers after the accident at about 1:15 a.m. PT Saturday. Suh lost control of the 1970 Chevrolet Coupe he was driving, which then hit a curb, light pole, drinking fountain and tree. His vehicle was towed from the scene.

The second-year NFL player had two passengers in the vehicle. They were not injured.

It was unclear whether Suh was cited by police.

Suh, who graduated from Portland’s Grant High School, was suspended without pay by the NFL for stomping on the arm of Green Bay Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith in a nationally televised Thanksgiving Day game.

Suh wll miss the Lions’ games at New Orleans on Sunday night and home against Minnesota on Dec. 11. He will not be paid until he is reinstated Dec. 12, which will cost him $164,000.
