Jayron Kearse suspended 3 games for substance abuse

Lions safety Jayron Kearse out for the first three games because of a failed drug test. Breaking pretty much everywhere online.

Forgot he was even on the team tbh…

I disagree with Eric on Moore, as I think he was already making the 53-man roster to begin with.
I do agree with Eric on Killebrew being the one to gain a spot in Kearse’s suspension.

For 3 games the Lions will likely just carry him on a roster spot. So I don’t think anyone will be gaining a roster spot that normally wouldn’t have.

On a side note the NFL suspended A. Brown 8 games.

Who?

Unless the new CBA has changed things already, he literally does not count against the 53 for those 3 games. It’s a weird bonus for the team, in that they don’t have to go through any roster gymnastics to protect the suspended player. They don’t have to make a decision on him until he comes off the commissioner’s exempt list. So, it’s most likely that they’ll have a 53-man roster on week 1 and Kearse won’t/can’t be on it.
