Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Kenjon Barner has been suspended for four games by the NFL for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. He will not be able to practice or play with the team until after they play the Giants on November 2.

In the statement released by the NFL, a spokesperson says,

“Kenjon Barner, who is currently on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ practice squad, has been suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances. Barner is eligible for reinstatement on Tuesday, Nov. 3, following the Buccaneers’ Week 8 game at the New York Giants.”

The Bucs promoted Barner from the practice squad for their last two games. He returned one kickoff for 33 yards and was targeted for one pass while playing 13 overall snaps.
