Wide receiver Terry Glenn will be suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to a report by Peter King of CNNSI.com.
The suspension will last four games, according to King. According to league policy, Glenn will be allowed to continue practicing with the team and attending team functions until Sept. 3, one week before the regular season begins. He would miss games at Cincinnati and Carolina and home tilts against the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts.
Glenn has not practice since the third day of training camp, when it was announced that he had suffered a knee injury. The suspension is the latest in what has been a rocky offseason for the player. He still has a court date set for Oct. 2 stemming from his arrest in an alleged assault and battery against the mother of his 5-year-old son.
The Patriots have not yet released a statement on the suspension, but one is expected later today.
