BOSTON (CBS) – After Brandon Bolden made the Patriots roster following an impressive training camp and preseason, many saw the undrafted running back as this year’s feel-good story.
Now, that story has a dark cloud surrounding it.
On Friday, the NFL suspended Bolden four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing drugs.
The suspension will begin immediately meaning Bolden, who has been out since suffering a knee injury in Week 6, is eligible to return to the Patriots active roster following New England’s December 2 match up with the Dolphins.
Bolden was a solid contributor for the Patriots when he was on the field, rushing for 234 yards and two touchdowns in six games. He ran for a career-high 137 yards and a touchdown in New England’s 52-28 Week 4 win over the Bills in Buffalo.
