Ndamukong Suh steps on Aaron Rodgers -- was it on purpose?

UPDATE: On Monday, Suh was suspended for stepping on Aaron Rodgers. Click here for the full story.

Ndamukong Suh might have been up to his old antics again on Sunday in Green Bay.

With Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hobbled with a calf injury, Suh knocked down Rodgers in the fourth quarter. He then stepped on Rodgers' hobbled leg. It's tough to tell if it was inadvertent or intentional.

Rodgers wasn't happy.


This came a week after Lions center Dominic Raiola stepped on a Bears defender and was suspended for one game.

After the game, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was none too pleased.

"I didn't see it live, I didn't see it on the Jumbotron, but from what I'm told, I'm told it was ridiculous," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said, via ESPN. "There's no place for that. That's where I'm at with it. I don't understand it, frankly."

Rodgers finished 17 of 22 for 226 yards. He was out of the game for about a seven-minute stretch between the second and third quarters. In between, Calvin Johnson had touchdown catches of 4 and 20 yards on consecutive drives to help the Lions roar back from a 14-0 deficit.

Rodgers' teammates weren't too happy about Suh's latest antics.

"I didn't see it, but there's some history there," Packers right guard T.J. Lang said. "So obviously until I see the play, I can have a better judgment call of that, but Aaron said he stepped on him and didn't really appreciate it, so."
