Ex-Packer defensive lineman suspended

Peterson violates National Football League's steroids policy

Denver Broncos defensive end Kenny Peterson, the Green Bay Packers' third-round pick in the 2003 NFL draft, has been suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL's steroid policy, according to published reports.

The Broncos released an NFL statement saying Peterson will be suspended for the first four games of the 2007 season starting Aug. 31.

The statement said Peterson had violated the policy on anabolic steroids and related substances but didn't specify what he had done.

Peterson will be able to go to training camp with Denver, but won't be able to return to the active roster until Oct. 1, after the Broncos play the Indianapolis Colts.

Peterson was cut by the Packers last September.
