The high-octane offense of the Saints took a hit on Tuesday when it was learned starting left guard Jamar Nesbit has been suspended without pay for the team’s next four games for violating the NFL Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances.
Nesbit’s suspension begins immediately. He is eligible to return to the Saints’ active roster on Monday, Oct. 20, following the team’s Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers the previous day.
“We are disappointed in the suspension of Jamar,” said Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis. “We will support Jamar through this process and look forward to having him rejoin the team soon.”
