TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The NFL has issued a one-game suspension for former Florida State and Wakulla High linebacker Nigel Bradham for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Bradham is entering his third season with the Buffalo Bills.
"My whole thing is to stay positive," Bradham told reporters in Buffalo. "It's something that followed me from last year, a decision I made. I regret it, made a mistake, I apologized to my teammates, sorry that we have to go through this again."
Last year in August, Tonawanda (NY) Police cited Braham for possession of marijuana during a traffic stop. The citation was eventually thrown out.
Bradham is still eligible to practice with the team and play throughout training camp and the preseason, but he will miss the Bills' first game of the regular season, September 7 against Chicago.
