Lions' Suh pleased with decision to let him play

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says he is "pleased" that the NFL has decided not to suspend him for Sunday's NFL playoff game at Dallas.

And that's about all.

Suh spoke Wednesday, one day after a hearing officer reduced a one-game league suspension to a $70,000 fine.

Suh originally was suspended for stepping on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' left leg twice last Sunday in a loss to Green Bay for the NFC North title. He stepped on Rodgers once with each foot, which violated unnecessary roughness rules, according to the league.

Suh declined to discuss the incident with reporters, and kept his answers short when asked about the suspension and fine.
