Bengals Guard Bobbie Williams Suspended Four Games For Use Of Performance Enhancing Substance

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that Bengals starting right guard Bobbie Williams will be suspended for the first four games of the 2011 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. Williams is the second Bengals player in the past year to be suspended by the league for violating one of the illegal substance polices; Antwan Odom lost four games last year for testing positive for an illegal substance.

With Williams out for the first four games this, the Bengals will would be left with Nate Livings and Clint Boling as the team's starting guards. Max Jean-Gilles was released earlier on Thursday and Otis Hudson, who was originally backing up Williams, missed the preseason due to an injury; however he did make the final cuts on Saturday. Based on preseason performances, Boling did receive several snaps at right guard, suggesting that the team's fourth round draft pick during the 2011 NFL Draft could be one of three rookies to start on offense this year.
