NFL: Thurman suspended all of 2008

Earlier this week, Sports Illustrated reported that Odell Thurman would be suspended from the league "indefinitely". On Friday, the league confirmed it via a league spokesman: "He will not be considered for reinstatement until after the 2008 season."

Thurman holds a unique interest with Bengals fans because his rookie season was so impressive, that some fans were calling him a "young Ray Lewis". So much talent, natural instinct, likely all gone with a career that, unless he has a Josh Hamilton-like rebound, is over.
