Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett says Ndamukong Suh’s suspension won’t change the way the team approaches their opening round playoff game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
“The biggest thing that we try to do around here is focus on ourselves,” Garrett said this week, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “Obviously, when you prepare for a game there is personnel you prepare for, there is scheme you get prepared for in all three phases. But the biggest thing we try to do is focus on our football team and how we can get better.”
Suh, of course, was suspended for a game for stepping on Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ ankle on Sunday. Suh will appeal the suspension.
“We’ve played against him and the defensive front of the Lions before,” Garrett said. “They’re very challenging. They’ve got a lot of first round picks, a lot of talented guys on that front, so excited to get into the film and start our preparation against them. He’s obviously been one of the better players at his position since he’s been in the league.”
UPDATE: Suh won his appeal and will play.
