NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) -Former LSU and current Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for six games for allegedly violating the team’s performance-enhancing drug policy, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The eight-time Pro Bowl cornerback was originally to be suspended for the first eight games of the 2019 NFL season but it was reduced to six when Peterson dropped his appeal.
