The NFL will suspend free agent wide receiver Alex Collins for three games for violating the league's personal conduct policy, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport

The suspension comes after Collins was arrested in Baltimore on March 1. Police found him asleep in his car after he crashed it into a tree near the Ravens' facility. The team waived him shortly after his arrest. Collins was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a handgun in a vehicle.

Despite being expected to sign with a team before the start of the 2019 season, those plans changed when Collins suffered a broken leg in July. Rapoport reports the free agent is recovering from the injury and should be medically cleared to resume football duties again next week.

Through three NFL seasons, Collins has tallied 1,509 yards on 357 carries and 14 touchdowns with the Seahawks and Ravens.
