NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The NFL has suspended Tennessee fullback Ahmard Hall for the first four games without pay for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
The suspension was announced Saturday along with the Titans' roster moves.
Hall's suspension begins immediately, and he will return to the active roster Oct. 3 after the Titans play the Cleveland Browns.
The fullback signed a one-year contract to return to the Titans for his sixth season with Tennessee. The former Marine signed with the Titans as a free agent after walking on at Texas. He is a key blocker for three-time Pro Bowl running back Chris Johnson.
