In March, Sutton was released from the Lions after police publicized a warrant for his arrest. He was wanted on a felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation.

Channel 11′s Jenna Harner spoke with Sutton after Steelers practice Wednesday. He couldn’t talk about the case specifically, but said when it comes to any discipline from the NFL, whatever it comes down to, they’re ready to move on in that direction.

Sutton also said over the last few months, he had been in contact with Mike Tomlin and the team, who were checking in on his well-being.
