Free agent Jarrett Bush has been suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to ESPN.com.
That means if the Green Bay Packers re-sign Bush, he won’t be able to play until Week 5. Bush played for the Packers from 2006 through last season, mostly as a backup and special-teams contributor.
The 31-year-old was arrested in March, when he was charged with public intoxication in Vacaville, California, but this suspension was not for that charge.
Bush is the second member of the Packers’ 2014 team to be suspended this offseason. The Packers will be without defensive end Datone Jones, suspended for the regular-season opener.
Defensive tackle Letroy Guion and tight end Andrew Quarless also face possible suspensions after their offseason arrests.
