More Trouble on the D-Line: Neal Suspended for 4 Games


According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, third year defensive end Mike Neal will be suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season for using steroids.

Since 2010, the Packers defense line has had awful luck:
• Johnny Jolly has been suspended and jailed for drug use;
• Justin Harrell, a first round draft pick, could never get healthy;
• And now Mike Neal, who flashed potential before getting hurt in his rookie season, wasn’t effective last year and now will be hard pressed to contribute in 2012.
