Neal suspended 4 games for violating steroid policy

Mike Neal 's problems staying on the field continue. The Green Bay Packers confirmed that the NFL has suspended the third-year defensive lineman for the first four games this season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Neal missed all but two games of his rookie year because of injuries, including a torn labrum in his shoulder that sidelined him the final 11 games. Then last year he missed the first nine games because of a knee injury sustained in training camp and never was the same player after his return from arthroscopic surgery. The Packers were hoping he'd get fully healthy this offseason and provide the inside pass rush they lacked last year. Neal will be able to participate in training camp but then will miss the first four games without pay. The Packers, citing confidentiality of the program, offered no comment on the suspension other than confirming it in a written statement.
