DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos defensive end Kenny Peterson has been suspended without pay for violating the NFL's steroid policy.
The Broncos released an NFL statement saying Peterson will be suspended without pay for the first four games of 2007, beginning August 31st.
The statement said Peterson had violated the policy on anabolic steroids and related substances, but did not specify what he had done.
Peterson will be able to join the Broncos for training camp, but won't be able to return to the active roster until October 1, after the Broncos play the Indianapolis Colts.
Peterson was cut by Green Bay last September and signed with the Broncos to replace Courtney Brown, who had to undergo a left-knee operation five weeks into the season.
Green Bay picked Peterson in the third-round of the 2003 draft.
