NFL Suspends Vikings LB Kentrell Brothers Four Games

The NFL announced on Friday that Vikings linebacker Kentrell Brothers has been suspended for the first four games of the season for a violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Brothers, who can still play and practice in the preseason, is eligible to return to the active roster after the Vikings’ Week 4 game against the Rams on Sept. 27. His earliest regular-season game would be against the Eagles on Oct. 7.

A fifth-round pick in 2016 out Missouri, Brothers had earned a roster spot the past two years in large part because of his work on special teams, though 2017 fourth-rounder Ben Gedeon won a spot at weak-side linebacker in the team’s base defense after Chad Greenway’s retirement.
