Bills’ Marcell Dareus given four-game NFL suspension

Marcell Dareus won’t be on the field for Buffalo for the first quarter of the season. He’s been suspended by the NFL for violation of the league’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

After receiving news of the suspension the team issued the following statement late Tuesday afternoon.

We are very disappointed Marcell chose to put himself first, before his teammates, coaches and the rest of the organization through his recent actions. From ownership down we have made it clear his behavior is unacceptable. We will continue to take the necessary steps to work with him in order that he adheres to the policies set forth by our league. As an organization, we will move forward with our preparations for the start of the 2016 NFL season in Baltimore on September 11.
