CINCINNATI — The NFL has suspended without pay Bengals G Alex Redmond for the first four games of the 2019 regular season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
That means Redmond will miss the Bengals' week-two home opener against the 49ers, as well as games on the road against Seattle, Buffalo and Pittsburgh.
Redmond is still eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, the league announced.
The Bengals re-signed Redmond in April to a one-year contract. He started 15 games last season and the team credited his blocking with assisting Joe Mixon rush for an AFC-best 1,168 yards.
