Broncos' Quentin Saulsberry suspended for PED violation

USA TODAY Sports

Denver Broncos practice squad member Quentin Saulsberry was busted for PEDs on Tuesday and hit with a four-game ban by the NFL.

Even though he has yet to officially reach the field this season, Denver Broncos rookie practice squad member Quentin Saulsberry was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, according to a report by Mike Klis of The Denver Post.

An undrafted rookie out of Mississippi State back in April, the 6'2, 304-pound Saulsberry caught on with the Broncos shortly before the season after being released by Minnesota in training camp. Though he was not viewed as athletic enough to overcome his relatively smallish size on the interior, Saulsberry was still viewed as a developing player with the Broncos who could potentially be relied upon for a spot-starting role down the line.

Due to the fact that only two games remain in the regular season, Saulsberry could possibly be forced to miss time next year in order to fulfill the league's suspension. It's surprisingly rare for a practice squad player to be penalized after failing a drug test like this, so while the suspension doesn't directly hinder Denver's roster at the moment, it still shows the league is not playing around when it comes to players looking to gain an extra edge.
