Lions' Armonty Bryant suspended three games

Armonty Bryant has been suspended once again.

The Lions defensive end was suspended three games for violating the league's policy on substances of abuse, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

"When we signed Armonty, we knew additional discipline from the NFL was a possibility due to an incident that occurred in 2015," the Lions said in a statement. "Since joining our team, Armonty has met our expectations on and off the field."

This is the second suspension Bryant has incurred this season. As a member of the Browns, he was banned for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances after being indicted on two felony counts of drug possession stemming from a traffic stop and arrest in 2015.

Released before his first suspension, Bryant was claimed by the Lions off waivers in October. In four games in Detroit, Bryant has racked up three sacks and one forced fumble. He will not be able to return until Week 13 when the Lions take on the Saints.
