Lions' Raiola suspended 1 game for stepping on opponent

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions will be short-handed when they face Green Bay for the NFC North title.

Lions center Dominic Raiola has been suspended for one game after he stepped on Chicago Bears defensive tackle Ego Ferguson on Sunday. The punishment was handed down by Merton Hanks, the NFL's Vice President of Football Operations. The league said this was Raiola's sixth rules violation related to player safety since 2010.

Lions players were not available to reporters Monday, and coach Jim Caldwell addressed reporters before the suspension was announced. Even then, Caldwell seemed aware of the possibility.
