Source: Ex-Dolphins DE Robert Nkemdiche suspended

Former Cardinals and Dolphins defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, now a free agent, has been suspended for two weeks by the NFL, a source tells ESPN's Field Yates.

It was not immediately clear why he was suspended.

The Cardinals released Nkemdiche, their 2016 first-round pick, in July, one day after he arrived at training camp out of shape.

The Dolphins signed him to a one-year deal worth up to $1.1 million in August. He was placed on the physically unable to perform list as he continued to recover from a torn ACL suffered in December 2018 and get into better playing shape.

He was released last week after playing just two games with the Dolphins.
