Buccaneers’ Ndamukong Suh misses practice with a knee issue
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh missed practice on Wednesday due to a knee issue, according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.
Through five games, Suh has logged nine tackles, a couple of fumble recoveries and a defensive touchdown. He signed a one-year deal with the Buccaneers back in May.
Suh, who played his collegiate football at the University of Nebraska, was originally selected by the Detroit Lions with the second overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.
He immediately stamped his name among the most dominant defensive players in the league, racking up 65 tackles, 10 sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and a defensive score during his rookie year, making the Pro Bowl and earning a First-Team All-Pro selection as a result.
The 32-year-old spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Lions, notching four Pro Bowl appearances while earning First-Team All-Pro honors three times.
Suh then went on to sign a monster contract with the Miami Dolphins in March 2015, but he was a major disappointment in South Beach, resulting in the Dolphins cutting him three years into his six-year deal.
The Portland, Or. native proceeded to join the Los Angeles Rams for one season, totaling 59 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and a pair of fumble recoveries and helping the Rams reach the Super Bowl.
However, Los Angeles opted not to re-sign Suh, and the defensive tackle remained unsigned for an extended period of time before Tampa Bay inked him to a deal.
Suh has not missed a game since 2011.
