Redskins' Jordan Black Suspended Four Games For PEDs

Redskins offensive tackle Jordan Black has been suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs.

His suspension is without pay and begins immediately. For him to return this season, the 'Skins would have to reach the NFC Championship Game.

Black is the sixth -- yes, sixth -- Redskin to be suspended for a drug-related offense within the last two years (Cedric Griffin, Tanard Jackson, Fred Davis, Trent Williams and Phillip Buchanon), third this season (Griffin and Jackson) and second within the last three weeks (Griffin).

Black doesn't play much, but his suspension is another blow to an already-hurting offensive line. Tyler Polumbus suffered a concussion during Sunday's 38-21 win over the Browns, while Will Montgomery has a sprained left MCL.
