Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount will be suspended for the first regular season game of the 2015 NFL season for violating the substance abuse policy, the league said Tuesday.

Blount will be able to practice in all the team’s off-season activities and pre-season practices before the suspension sets in.

The belief is, this suspension is for the arrest back when he played for Pittsburgh and was busted with teammate Bell onĀ marijuana possession charges. The charges were dropped in January on the grounds Blount completes 50 hours of community service by Feb 4th.

The NFL hasn’t announced the punishment for Bell, who was also charged with DUI.
