Former Gamecock, Saunders, suspended by NFL

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis Colts tight end Weslye Saunders has been suspended eight games without pay after violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

League officials did not say Thursday what substance was found in Saunders' test. He can practice with the team during training camp and can play in preseason games. He won't be eligible again until Nov. 4.

It is the third time in less than a month that a Colts player has run into off-the-field trouble.

In June, the league announced receiver LaVon Brazill was suspended four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. And earlier this month, backup safety Joe Lefeged was arrested in Washington on a gun possession charge. He has not been disciplined by the league.

Saunders had two receptions for 15 yards last season in Indy.
