Redskins DE Brandon Moore suspended

Defensive end Brandon Moore was a longshot to make the Redskins' roster. His path got a lot harder Tuesday when the NFL announced he would be suspended for the first four games of the season.

According to the NFL, Moore will be suspended without pay for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. However, he'll be eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.

The Redskins were awarded Moore off waivers after Kansas City cut him last month. Moore left the University of Texas early to enter the NFL, but went undrafted in 2013. He spent time on the practice squads for both Denver and San Diego.
