GLENDALE, AZ – Patrick Peterson, the Arizona Cardinal’s star defensive back and a former Tiger, has been suspended for a third of the 2019 NFL season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Peterson’s suspension Thursday, saying he violated the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
Cardinals’ CB Patrick Peterson now will miss the first six games: Arizona’s regular-season opener vs. the Lions, then games at Baltimore, at home against the Panthers and Seahawks, at Cincinnati and at home against the Falcons.

Peterson’s missed games are expected to cost him more than $3.8 million in lost wages, Schefter reports.
