Dietrich-Smith focuses on start not stomp

Evan Dietrich-Smith has bigger things to worry about than Ndamukong Suhs two-game suspension for stomping on his arm in Thursdays game at Detroit. Dietrich-Smith, who said he had no reaction to the suspension, was more focused on making his first NFL start on Sunday against the New York Giants. The second-year pro will get the call at right guard because Josh Sitton is out indefinitely because a sprained right knee. Either way, his profile changed. Hes no longer an anonymous backup offensive lineman. Im just taking it like I normally would, he said in the locker room today. I guess the coverage is good and everything like that, but Im not going to sit here and get too excited about it. The only thing I want to do is go out there and play and be part of this team and not make it anything about me. I want us to be successful as a team. Still, Dietrich-Smith answered almost as many questions about getting stomped on during the Thanksgiving game against the Lions as he did about preparing for Sunday. I had a million people call me and say, I saw you on SportsCenter, he said. I was like, Its fun, everyone sees me getting stomped on. When asked what he was thinking as it happened, he said: I touched on it on (Thursday), and thats pretty much as far as Im going with it.
