Detroit Lions player Armonty Bryant has been suspended by the National Football League.
According to a report from NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the Lions defensive end has been banned three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
This isn't the first time that Bryant has been hit with a suspension by Roger Goodell and co. It is safe to say the Lions knew this was coming.
"When we signed Armonty, we knew additional discipline from the NFL was a possibility due to an incident that occurred in 2015," the Lions said in a statement they released after the news broke.
"Since joining our team, Armonty has met our expectations on and off the field."
During his time with the Cleveland Browns, Bryant was banned for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
That came after the former 7th round pick was indicted on two felony counts of drug possession stemming from a traffic stop and arrest in 2015.
The Browns released Bryant before his first suspension, Bryant was claimed by the Lions off waivers in October. In four games in Detroit, Bryant has racked up three sacks
He will not be able to play again until the Lions take on the New Orleans Saints in week 13.
