DE Antwan Odom suspended four games

Following a two-game losing streak, the news keeps getting worse for the Cincinnati Bengals (2-3).

The NFL announced Friday that Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom will be suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Odom appealed the suspension this year, but now it is effective immediately.

Following its bye week, Cincinnati has a tough stretch of games coming up against the Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts. Odom will be suspended for all those games and can return to the active roster on Nov. 15.

This season Odom has just four tackles and zero sacks.
