Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith recounted Ndamukong Suh called him to say sorry a couple of days after the Lions defensive lineman’s infamous Thanksgiving Day stomp. Baseball lines

So far as Dietrich-Smith is concerned, that was the end of a widely publicized event that got Suh penalized for two games — and momentarily made Dietrich-Smith known for all of the wrong reasons.

“He’s cool, he says sorry, and there’s no hard feelings and that is just about it,” Dietrich-Smith said. Baseball betting lines

With the Lions coming to Lambeau Field for Sunday’s regular-season finale, Dietrich-Smith doesn’t expect anything unusual to occur between him and Suh if they’re on the field together.

“I think we’ve all moved past it,” Dietrich-Smith announced. “It’s a large learning experience for everybody. I think everyone in the league can be aware of everything that occurred and I suspect every player will probably take a step forward to move past that sort of stuff.”

Even in the heat of the moment, Dietrich-Smith said he wasn’t nearly convinced to snap back at Suh.

“Stuff happens,” Dietrich-Smith declared. “It’s football. It’s an emotional game. Sometimes you get carried away and you learn from those kind of things, and that’s about it.”

Dietrich-Smith is a backup for the Packers and was playing on Thanksgiving after an injury to right guard Josh Sitton. He has started 4 straight games since then because of injuries, 3 at right guard and one at left guard.

Now Dietrich-Smith hopes he’ll be better known for his play instead of as the guy who was jumped by Suh.

“It’s always better when it’s about football,” Dietrich-Smith announced. “That’s how we are always looking forward. Our performances on the field are always going to communicate more than the words we ( say ) in the locker room.”

Lions coach Jim Schwartz asserted he doesn’t expect any retribution toward Suh from the Packers.

“Ndamukong did not plan on doing that,” Schwartz said in a conference call with members of the media in Green Bay. “He lost his composure in the heat of the moment. I’d be exceedingly shocked if any team — Green Bay Packers included — was to plan something similar to that. It’s a awfully physical game, it’s hard, sometimes folks make calls on the field, but I’d be terribly stunned if anything like that’s premeditated.”
