Patriots’ Ty Law Suspended

December 20, 2000

FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) _ The New England Patriots suspended Ty Law for Sunday’s season-ending game against Miami, two days after the cornerback was caught at the Canadian border with the illegal drug Ecstasy.

Coach Bill Belichick announced the move Wednesday but declined to comment on the reasons for it. He did not say whether wide receivers Terry Glenn and Troy Brown, who were also late for Monday’s team meeting, would be disciplined.

``It’s a closed case,″ Belichick said. ``I really don’t think it’s appropriate to talk about details and circumstances.″

Belichick said the decision was made by the team, without consultation with the NFL. League spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday the league will review the episode to determine if Law violated the league’s substance abuse policy.
