Cleveland Browns' Ryan Tucker suspended 4 games The NFL suspended the offensive lineman Ryan Tucker of the Cleveland Browns for the first four games of the regular season. He was found guilty of violating the League's substance abuse policy.

 Tucker will be allowed to train with the Browns and take part in the preseason, but once the regular season begins, he will be placed on the reserve-suspended list and will not be eligible to participate in any practices or games until the punishment expires after the fourth game of the team. The first game Ryan Tucker is allowed to take part of is on October 1st against the Baltimore Ravens.

 "I didn't intend to compromise the integrity of the NFL, my team. I want to apologize to the fans, my family. It's been a long road. I was pretty down and out last year and my attempt to come back I took a banned substance. I'm going to fulfil this punishment and get it behind me," Tucker said on Friday.
