Bears rookie offensive tackle Tayo Fabuluje has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy.
Fabuluje, a reserve lineman, will miss games against the Rams, Broncos, Packers and 49ers. NBC Chicago’s Peggy Kusinski reports Fabuluje bought an over-the-counter appetite suppressant from GNC “to curb his night time appetite” during training camp.
”Took a appetite suppressant back in training camp that ended up failing me on a test... Wasn't intentional just a unfortunate situation...” Fabuluje wrote to Kusinski via text.
Fabuluje was selected in the sixth round of this year’s draft out of TCU. He has appeared in four games this season, playing on special teams and in short-yardage situations.
He will be eligible to return to the team Dec. 7.
