Former Green Bay Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang is no fan of Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. On the 'Pardon My Take' podcast, posted Monday, the new Detroit Lion recalled matching up against Suh. “I hated [playing against him].

Lawsuit accuses GM of using emission defeat devices

Add General Motors to the growing list of automakers facing accusations they tried to thwart regulators by installing software designed to cheat emissions tests. A lawsuit seeking class-action status, filed today in federal district court in Detroit, accuses GM of using so-called defeat devices in two models of heavy-duty diesel trucks, echoing similar claims against Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. GM is denying the allegations. "These claims are baseless, and we will vigorously defend ourselves," the company said in a brief statement.

Calvin Johnson says it’s common for players to hide concussions from coaches

Former Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson said he hid concussions from team doctors during his nine-year NFL career and that it is a common practice in the league, according to the Detroit Free Press. “Guys get concussions, they don’t tell the coaches,” Johnson said on Saturday, according to the Free Press. Johnson's assertion follows comments made by Gisele Bundchen, the wife of Tom Brady, who last week said on CBS This Morning that Brady has suffered concussions during his career and sustained an undisclosed concussion last season.
