The stomp came late in the Lions’ game against the Packers on Sunday. Rodgers had exited earlier after aggravating an injury to his left calf. He returned to the game after receiving treatment in the locker room.
After Rodgers threw a pass, Suh backed into the quarterback, knocking him down. Suh then continued moving backward, stepping on Rodgers twice.
