ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Tyrone Robertson was suspended for four games by the NFL on Wednesday for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Robertson, Buffalo's seventh-round pick in last year's draft, had been inactive for all four Bills games this season. He appeared in 12 games as a reserve last season, recording 27 tackles and two sacks.
The NFL would not elaborate on the details of the violation.
Robertson was not available for comment and a message left by The Associated Press with his agent, Patrick Dye, was not immediately returned.
Bills coach Gregg Williams had no comment other than to say that the team has been notified of the suspension.
Robertson, placed on the Bills reserved-suspended list, is eligible to return to the active roster on Oct. 28.
To replace Robertson, the Bills activated linebacker Dominique Stevenson from their practice squad. Stevenson was the fourth of Buffalo's four seventh-round selections in last April's draft.
The Bills also signed free agent defensive tackle Omari Jordan to their practice squad.
Jordan was released by Baltimore before the season.
