Has there ever been a NFL player suspended who might not even make the roster to serve the suspension?
Either way, that might be the case for New York Giants wide receiver, Brandon Collins, who was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
The NFL announced Monday that Brandon Collins has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
Collins will be eligible to return to the Giants’ active roster on Monday, September 30. He was an undrafted rookie last year out of Southeastern Louisiana that made some noise in the offseason before spending the year on the team’s practice squad.
Collins was hoping to make the Giants’ 53-man roster out of camp after being continually praised by offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride but now may struggle to stay with the franchise’s practice squad after the suspension.
There has been no word from the Giants on Collins’ pending suspension.
