Detroit Lions' Armonty Bryant suspended four games


Detroit Lions pass rusher Armonty Bryant was suspended four games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, the team announced Tuesday.

Bryant, who was suspended twice last season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing drugs (four games) and violating the league’s policy on drugs of abuse (three games), will now miss the Lions‘ first four contests of the 2017 season. He’s eligible to return on Oct. 2 after Detroit’s Oct. 1 tilt against the Minnesota Vikings.

Bryant, who was claimed off waivers by the Lions in October after being released by the Cleveland Browns last season, re-signed with Detroit in March. He recorded five tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble with the Lions before suffering a season-ending knee injury in December.
