Patriots RB Bolden Suspended 4 Games for PED Violation

New England Patriots running back Brandon Bolden has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

The substance he used is unknown.

Bolden is currently suffering from a knee injury that occurred against the Seattle Seahawks. The injury has kept him out of the last two games as well as practice leading up to this week’s contest against the Buffalo Bills.

The announcement is somewhat disappointing, as Bolden’s rise from undrafted free agent to impressive part of the Patriots running back corps was a heartening story. He had 243 yards and two touchdowns on 43 carries this season before his injury and suspension (not to mention sweet dreads).

His suspension takes effect immediately, and Bolden will not be eligible to return until early December, directly after the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins.
