Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Alex Redmond will be suspended four games for violating the NFL’s Performance-Enhancing Drug Policy, per reports from ESPN on Wednesday.

“Played last season with a torn labrum and hamstring injury, and made bad decision to try to help it,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted.

Redmond, 24, started 15 games at right guard last season for the Bengals. He was an undrafted free agent out of UCLA in 2016, signing with the Bengals that year before being cut at the end of training camp. Cincinnati brought him back in January 2017, and he played in five games that season.

He re-signed with the Bengals in April on a one-year exclusive rights free agent contract worth a reported $645,000.
