NFL Suspends New York Giants Defensive Tackle Kennedy 4 Games

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The National Football League suspended New York Giants defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy four games without pay for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Kennedy’s suspension begins immediately, the NFL said yesterday in an e-mailed release. He will be eligible to return to the Giants’ active roster on Nov. 14.

In keeping with NFL policy, the league did not say what substance Kennedy was suspended for using.

Kennedy, 31, who has four tackles in five games this season, is in his first season with the Giants after spending the previous three years with the Minnesota Vikings. He also has played for Jacksonville, Chicago and St. Louis.
