Less than three weeks after Kwon Alexander's inspirational performance in a win over the Atlanta Falcons, he is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
The news came down Sunday, though Alexander will get to play this week against the Eagles. The league likely will give formal notice on Monday, at which point Alexander can decide whether or not to appeal.
Alexander, a rookie fourth-round pick out of LSU, has been one of Smith's best defensive players and is third on the team in solo tackles. Alexander also has two picks and a forced fumble.
