Dontay Moch: Bengals LB Suspended 4 Games for Unspecified Violation

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch has been suspended for four games, according to NFL reporter and radio host Adam Caplan.

Caplan tweeted on Wednesday:

 

This may be connected to Moch reportedly being suspended for four games in May for allegedly using a banned substance.

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported on May 19:

 

Moch, a third-round pick in 2011, suffered a broken foot in the opening preseason game against the Detroit Lions last season. He returned to full practice in October, but was listed as inactive for the sixth game of the regular season. He didn't play the rest of the season.

The Bengals certainly can't be happy with Moch, who hasn't lived up to the Bengals' impressive draft class from last year.

Green had 65 receptions for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in his rookie campaign. Dalton passed for nearly 3,400 yards and 20 touchdowns to 13 interceptions, leading the Bengals to the playoffs.

The Bengals took a big step last season, but Moch wasn't a part of it. The third-round pick still has time to make it up to Cincinnati, but he's certainly off to a poor start in his NFL career. For a player who racked up 64 tackles, 8.5 sacks and one forced fumble in his final season at Nevada, he certainly isn't living up to his potential.
