PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Steelers tight end Weslye Saunders will be forced to sit out the first four games of 2012, as the NFL suspended the rookie four games for violating its policy on performance enhancing substances.

Saunders can take part in all preseason games and practices up until his suspension begins Sept. 1.

Saunders made the Steelers roster as an undrafted rookie free agent out of South Carolina. He caught four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown for Pittsburgh in 2011.
