Suh was thrown out of the Thanksgiving contest in the third quarter when he was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. He was caught pushing Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith's head to the turf a couple of times, then stomping on his right arm.
He gave an explanation after the 27-15 loss.
"I was on top of a guy being pulled down and trying to get up off the ground, which is why you see me pushing his helmet down," Suh stated. "As I'm getting up, I'm getting pushed so I'm getting myself unbalanced... With that a lot of people are going to interpret it as or create their own storylines, but I know what I did, and the man upstairs knows what I did."
Suh will likely receive some type of discipline from the league and it could be a severe punishment for being a repeat offender. He was fined $20,000 in the preseason for a hit against Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton.
"I understand in this world because of the type of player and type of person I am, all eyes are on me," Suh added. "So why would I do something to jeopardize myself, jeopardize my team, first and foremost? I don't do bad things. I have no intentions to hurt someone."
Suh, who has gained a reputation as a dirty player, also met with commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this month to discuss his style of play.
