Cardinals OT Bobby Massie suspended three games
Tuesday August 11th, 2015

The NFL has suspended Cardinals offensive tackle Bobby Massie for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to multiple reports.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news, which was confirmed by's Ian Rapoport. Massie will reportedly appeal the ruling.

According to Rapoport, the suspension comes as the result of an incident during the week of the Super Bowl, when Massie was arrested for being intoxicated behind the wheel. Rapoport reports Massie had been sleeping in his car and wants the suspension cut to two games.

Massie started all 16 games at right tackle for the Cardinals last season and was a fourth round selection in the 2012 draft.

The Cardinals selected tackle D.J. Humphries in the first round of the 2015 draft. Massie will be a free agent after the 2015 season.
