A member of the Indianapolis Colts practice squad will be unable to play for the remainder of the regular season, as defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad has been suspended without pay for the next six games for violating the NFL's Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances, per NFL Media.
Muhammad is the second Colts defensive lineman to be suspended for PEDs this season, as defensive tackle Grover Stewart was in October.
Muhammad has spent the majority of his career with the Colts, but has not played in a game this season. A sixth-round pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2017 out of the University of Miami, Muhammad played four games in his rookie season, and was then waived ahead of the 2018 season. He was claimed by the Colts, and ended up spending four seasons in Indy.
