TAMPA — A second Bucs player has been suspended for using performance enhancing drugs.
Defensive tackle Terry Beckner, Jr., a seventh-round pick from Missouri, was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on PEDs, the league announced Monday. The seventh-round pick from Missouri had been on the team’s practice squad.
Beckner, Jr., will be eligible to return Nov. 18 following the Bucs’ Week 11 game against New Orleans.
He is the second Bucs player to be suspended for taking banned performance enhancing drugs this season. After being released by the Bucs last week, linebacker Devante Bond revealed he had been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on PEDs.
The Bucs did not announce a corresponding move and did not comment on the suspension.
