Bengals' Alex Redmond suspended 4 games for PEDs


The Cincinnati Bengals will start the season without guard Alex Redmond.

The NFL suspended Redmond four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, the team announced Thursday.

Redmond, who started 15 games at right guard in 2018, recently re-signed a one-year deal to return to Cincinnati as an exclusive rights free agent.

The Bengals, though, are covered when considering the team signed guard John Miller to a three-year, $16.5 million deal during free agency. Miller is an upgrade over Redmond.
