ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted earlier today that Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib will serve a four-game suspension for using Adderall. According to Schefter, he does not plan on appealing his ban.

Talib was suspended from playing in the 2010 opener without pay and fined for violating the league's personal conduct policy after an altercation with a St. Petersburg cab driver during the 2009 training camp.

The Buccaneers will rely more on their other cornerback, Eric Wright, who was signed this offseason after playing for the Detroit Lions last season. Wright has one interception this season for Tampa Bay.

E.J. Biggers, who has started 12 games at cornerback for the Buccaneers, may get the call to start tomorrow against the Chiefs.

Talib will begin serving his four-game suspension this week and will miss the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He will return on Nov. 11 when the Buccaneers play the San Diego Chargers.
