Panthers DE Frank Alexander suspended for one year
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers defensive end Frank Alexander has been suspended for one year for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, the team said Tuesday afternoon on Twitter.
Alexander played college football at the University of Oklahoma and was selected by the Panthers as the 103rd overall pick in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
On May 5, 2014, Alexander was suspended for four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Alexander was exposed to waivers in August due to a torn Achilles tendon. He cleared waivers and was reverted to the Panther’s injured reserve list.
