Pennel was suspended for four games after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. A roster spot was cleared for him after the team released Brian Price. It's unclear how much of a role Pennel will have Sunday, though he'll likely slide in for a few snaps at a minimum.
Mike Pennel has been suspended four games for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
An undrafted free agent in 2014, Pennel served behind B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion last season, notching one sack among 25 tackles. The Green Bay Packers have already inked Guion to a three-year deal, and Raji may leave in free agency, leaving more snaps available to Pennel once he fulfills the suspension. However, the preceding is assuming Pennel even lands a spot on the eventual 53-man roster.
