Police in Oregon say Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh crashed his car into a tree in downtown Portland, but was not injured.
Police say Suh was not impaired and was cooperative with officers following the accident at about 1:15 a.m. Saturday. Suh lost control of the 1970 Chevrolet Coupe he was driving, which then hit a curb, light pole, drinking fountain and tree. His vehicle was towed from the scene.
Suh had two passengers in the vehicle. They were not injured.
Suh is a graduate of Portland’s Grant High School. He was the NFL’s 2010 Defensive Rookie of the Year. On Tuesday, the league suspended him for two games for stomping the arm of Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith.
49ERS: The team is closer to moving from San Francisco to a new stadium about 45 miles south in Santa Clara.
The team and City of Santa Clara announced Friday that they have secured long-awaited funding for the project. Goldman Sachs, Bank of America-Merrill Lynch and U.S. Bank have agreed to an $850 million loan with the city’s stadium authority and the 49ers.
RAMS: Activated quarterback Tom Brandstater from the practice squad, reflecting concern about Sam Bradford’s availability for today’s game at San Francisco.
Bradford aggravated a high left ankle sprain in a loss to Seattle last week, the same injury that sidelined him for two games earlier in the season.
JAGUARS: Placed starting cornerback Will Middleton on injured reserve with a knee injury, the third player done for the year at that position, joining Rashean Mathis and Derex Cox.
