Report: Bucs LB Kwon Alexander to start suspension for PED violation
Monday December 7th, 2015

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Kwon Alexander will reportedly begin his four-game suspension this week for violating the leagues’ performing-enhancing drugs policy, reports Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.

According to the Tampa Tribune, Alexander likely tested positive for the undisclosed substance during training camp. Despite saying it was his fault for taking the banned substance, the 21-year-old said he plans on appealing the ruling.

The rookie has started in every game this season at middle linebacker, recording 93 tackles and three sacks. He also contributed on defense with two interceptions and forced fumbles.
