Local NFL Star Suspended For Steroid Violation

Canton, OH - Former Canton McKinley High School graduate and Ohio State University football player, Kenny Peterson, has been suspended from the NFL's Denver Bronco's team without pay for four games after violating the league's steroid policy.

Peterson apparently purchased an over-the-counter supplement that violated the NFL's policy.

The Broncos released an NFL statement Friday saying Peterson will be suspended without pay starting Aug. 31. The statement said Peterson had violated the policy on anabolic steroids and related substances but didn't specify what he had done.

Peterson can join the Broncos for training camp but won't return to the active roster until Oct. 1 after the Broncos play the Indianapolis Colts.

Peterson was cut by Green Bay last September and signed with the Broncos to replace Courtney Brown, who had knee surgery five weeks into the season.

Green Bay picked Peterson in the third round of the 2003 draft.
