Packers' Grant thought Suh deserved more than two-game ban

When Ndamukong Suh was suspended two games for stomping Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving, it seemed like a sensible punishment given the act and Suh's history.

Ryan Grant couldn't disagree more. The Packers running back believes Suh's behavior deserved a far harsher judgment.

"I think that's old news for us, but I don't know, I sort of thought it was going to be a little bit longer," Grant said Thursday on 1250-AM in Milwaukee. "But at the end of the day, do I think it needs to be longer? Yeah, I do. I think it's absurd."

Grant was asked what are the dirtiest plays he's been involved with during his career.

"Eye gouge. Yeah, I've been eye gouged numerous times. Twisted ankles underneath the piles, trying to twist knees, sticking fingers in mouths and ears, I've had guys try to like rip your gums, you know what I mean? Just ask Leroy (Butler) what the safeties do, like trying to stick their hands in there and try to pull the gums. A bunch of stuff, but it's kind of part of the game. You learn to protect yourself."

We're not sure how someone would "pull" or "rip" gums. We don't want to know, either.
