The NFL suspended Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden for four games without pay on Monday for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances, NFL.com reports.

Haden had reportedly failed a test for taking Adderall, which is on the NFL's banned substance list. Haden's suspension will start immediately and he will be eligible to return to the Browns active roster on Oct. 8.

Browns president Mike Holmgren said last week that Haden already had his appeal hearing with the league.

Haden was allowed to play in the Browns opening day 17-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, where he recorded six tackles and had an interception.

Haden was the No. 7 overall draft pick by the Browns in 2007. He recorded six interceptions as a rookie, but had none last season.
