AP source: NFL suspends’ Bills Marcell Dareus for 4 games

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) – A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press the NFL has suspended Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity Tuesday because the suspension has not been announced by the league or the team.

ESPN.com first reported Dareus was suspended earlier in the day.

Dareus is five-year starter since being selected with the No. 3 pick in the 2011 draft. Last year, the Bills signed him to the most expensive contract in team history, a seven-year deal that is potentially worth $104 million.
