NFL benches Bills LB Nigel Bradham one game for substance abuse


The Buffalo Bills have a released a statement from the NFL regarding the suspension of linebacker Nigel Bradham for the season opener:

"Nigel Bradham of the Buffalo Bills has been suspended without pay for the first game of the 2014 regular season for violating the NFL policy and program for substances of abuse.

"Bradham will be eligible to return to the Bills' active roster on Monday, Sept. 8 following the team's Sept. 7 game against the Chicago Bears.

"Bradham is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games."

Bradham has been working with the Bills' starting defense in training camp at St. John Fisher College.

After a preseason arrest last year for marijuana possession in the Town of Tonawanda, Bradham played the whole season and started twice. He recorded 38 tackles, one for a loss. He was second on the team with 13 special-teams tackles.
