NFL Insider Jason La Canfora tweeted Saturday night that Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch will be suspended four games for the 2012 regular season for using a banned substance. The suspension is pending an appeal and there's no updates or reports what the substance could be. Either way we have to suspect that Moch's future with the team is somewhat suspect right now, especially after an injury and a migraine-plagued year voided his rookie season.

Moch responded to the La Canfora's tweet afterwards:

mistakes happens! learn n move forward.

If the suspension is upheld, Moch will have missed the first 20 games he was eligible to play to start his career, due to injuries (broken foot in the preseason last year), migraines and now a suspension. It wouldn't be a stretch to suggest that Moch could be a roster casualty due to his overall inability to get on the field for one reason or another.
