Lions' Suh, Logan earn monthly NFL honors
ALLEN PARK -- Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was named the NFL defensive rookie of the year today (Thursday).
Also, Lions return specialist Stefan Logan was named the NFL’s special teams player of the month. Logan averages 29.5 yards per kickoff return and 13.1 yard on punt returns. He returned a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown in the win over St. Louis on Oct. 10.
In Suh’s first seven NFL games he has collected 6.5 sacks, 27 tackles, one recovered fumble that he returned for a touchdown and one pass defense.
This marks the second straight month that a Lions rookie was honored. Running back Jahvid Best was the NFL’s offensive rookie of the month for September.
Both Suh and Best were first-round picks. St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford was October’s offensive rookie of the month. (Follow me on Twitter @PaulaPasche.)
