Steelers Tight End Weslye Saunders To Work Out In Arizona During Suspension


The four-game suspension has already started for second year tight end Weslye Saunders after both of his appeals were denied this offseason by the league.

Saunders, who was suspended back in February for testing positive for the banned substance Adderall, is currently not allowed to be around the team or the facility until after the bye week in Week 4. Saunders will not just sit around though as Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports via Twitter that Saunders is heading out to Arizona for a month to train at Athletes Performance Institute.

Saunders only received playing time late in preseason games this year, because of his forthcoming suspension, but he did manage to catch 3 passes for 45 yards and a touchdown during that time. Following his suspension, the South Carolina product will be activated to the 53 man roster where he will take the place of either veteran Leonard Pope or rookie David Paulson.

    It is a 4-weeks suspension, not 4 games. Saunders will be eligible to play in the Steelers’ 4th game, which follows a bye.
