Lions second-year DT Ndamukong Suh set up a meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell and other members of the league office to get clarity on his penalties, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported on Sunday.

According to Glazer, Suh wants to talk about some of the plays in which he has been penalized and fined. He also wants to explain his side so that he is on the same page with the league. Suh initiated the meeting, and it is expected to take place during the Lions' bye in Week Nine.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello explained more details about the meeting, saying the following in an email to Pro Football Talk:

"This particular meeting has been in the works for several weeks and grew out of Commissioner Goodell's respect for Ndamukong Suh and Ndamukong's desire to gain a deeper understanding of NFL rules and policies. Ndamukong reached out more than a month ago to the Commissioner, who offered him the opportunity to meet with the football operations football people that are responsible for enforcing the rules. Tuesday's meeting will include Ray Anderson, Merton Hanks, Carl Johnson and former Competition Committee co-chair and current NFL Football Operations consultant Jeff Fisher.  The Commissioner also invited Ndamukong to bring a Lions coach to the meeting.  Ndamukong has spoken previously to both independent appeals officers for on-field discipline, Art Shell and Ted Cottrell."

Suh got a 15-yard facemask penalty last week but was not fined. He has been fined in his career for hits on Jay Cutler, Jake Delhomme and Andy Dalton. Last season's Defensive Rookie of the Year has earned a reputation of being a "dirty player" because of some of his hits.
