Here’s a list of suspended NFL players

This is a list of suspended National Football League players sourced directly from CBSSports.com (as of 9/6/14).

As CBS mentioned, it’s been tough to keep track of all the suspensions, obviously the high profile cases so far – Josh Gordon, Wes Welker and Ray Rice – have received intense coverage, but there are many others. So here’s a list to keep track of the other 36 suspensions, and note this list may change as “talks” regarding the NFL’s drug policy are underway between the NFL and NFLPA.

As we know, headlines this fall have been a bizarre mix of domestic abuse, drugs, concussions and homosexuality; and the NFL’s public relations gurus have been sweating through two suits a day just trying to keep up.  Clearly, the League has its work cut out for it, but more importantly, right now the League has a rare opportunity to set precedents that will deal with how a range of topics are handled in the future. Making the right decisions about what policies to beef up (domestic violence, DUIs, assault), what policies to re-examine (marijuana) and what new policies to welcome (gay players) has the potential to reshape the much maligned image of the NFL. The League desperately needs a shot of positivity, and some insurance from these constant PR nightmares,  and it finally seems the powers that be have the motivation to do the kind of soul searching it needs to bring about a revival.
