Colts linebacker Kendyll Pope was suspended for a full year by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Based on the penalty imposed, Pope evidently tested positive for a third time for a banned substance.
The team is prohibited from discussing the specifics, but defenesive coordinator Ron Meeks expressed his disappointment for Pope at a personal level, and for the team as Pope had been progressing well as a key backup in the linebacking corps.
"I thought the kid had a chance to help us," Meeks told the Associated Press. "I feel bad. I really hope he can come around for us."
