ESPN 1015+ SHARES
Linebacker Robert Mathis has been suspended without pay for the Indianapolis Colts' first four games of the 2014 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Mathis will be eligible to return to the Colts' active roster on Monday, Sept. 29 following the team's September 28 game against the Tennessee Titans.
Mathis is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.
"We have learned that Robert Mathis will be required to serve a four game suspension under the League's policy on prohibited substances," a statement from the Colts read.
Indianapolis will miss his presence because its first two games in 2014 are at Denver, which led the league in scoring past season, and against Philadelphia.
