Indianapolis Colts’ Weslye Saunders Suspended First 8 Games of NFL Season
Indianapolis Colts tight end Weslye Saunders got some bad news this afternoon. Saunders was suspended by the NFL for the first eight games of the regular season as a result of a failed performance enhancing drug test. He’s the second Colts player to be suspended this offseason as wide receiver LaVon Brazill was also suspended for the first four games for a failed drug test.
Brazill was released by the team not long after the failed test, and Saunders will probably have the same result.
The tight end was signed by the Colts last October. He appeared mainly in reserve roles and in special teams as rookie tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener got most of the playing time for Indianapolis in 2012.
Now, another rookie out of South Carolina will likely take Saunders’ spot as Justice Cunningham was drafted by the Colts with the last pick of this past April’s NFL Draft. Dominique Jones returns to the team as well and the Colts will likely only hold four tight ends on the active 53-man roster as they did all year last season.
Allen, Fleener, Jones and Cunningham will be the four tight ends Andrew Luck will be throwing to as Saunders likely won’t have a spot when he returns after the midway point of the season.
Saunders has six receptions for 144 yards and a touchdown in his NFL career.
