Ravens TE Nick Boyle suspended four games for positive drug test

Monday December 7th, 2015

Baltimore Ravens tight end Nick Boyle has been suspended by the NFL for the final four games of the season for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drug policy, the team announced.

Boyle was selected in the fifth round of the NFL draft out of Delaware. Boyle has 18 catches for 153 yards in 11 games for the Ravens on the year. He missed the 16–13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Nov. 22 with a foot injury.

He is expected to return to the Ravens’ active roster on Monday, Jan. 4, following the team’s Week 17 game in Cincinnati.

Boyle was expected to see an increase in playing time after Maxx Williams sustained a concussion and Crockett Gillmore exited Sunday's 15–13 loss to the Miami Dolphins with a back injury.
