NFL announces eight-game suspension for DE DeQuin Evans

Robin Marchant

Evans, who has been with the Bengals since '11, will serve his second suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.

One down.

Just not the way that they had wanted.

The NFL announced on Friday that Bengals defensive end DeQuin Evans has been suspended for eight games this year after violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances. This is Evans' second violation after serving a four-game suspension while on the team's practice squad in 2011.

Evans is eligible to return to the team's active roster on Monday, Oct. 28 following the team's Oct. 27 game against the New York Jets.

In regards to the 53-man roster, the Bengals won't have to make a move regarding Evans now, who won't count against the 53-man roster during the first half of the season. The team clearly likes Evans, keeping him around since signing him as an undrafted free agent out of University of Kentucky following the 2011 NFL draft. That being said, he was a long-shot at best to make the roster.
