ALLEN PARK — Ndamukong Suh returned to the Lions this week for the OTA portion of the offseason workouts. He had not participated since they started on April 7.
The Detroit Lions defensive tackle had been widely criticized for missing the voluntary workouts especially because there was a new coaching staff and a new defense being installed.
Veteran running back Reggie Bush was asked on Wednesday if too much was made of Suh’s absence.
This was his reply: “Obviously he’s a great player, when you’re a good player you’re going to be in the spotlight. When you make the kind of money he does and then the productivity he brings to the game, the spotlight is going to be on you. So the little things are going to be magnified even bigger. So I don’t think anybody is surprised about it, we’re all grown men, we’re all adults, we understand it, we understand the way it works. You have to take it with a grain of salt, you have to understand it. When he’s here, he’s here. There’s nothing we can do about it.’’
