Buffalo Bills linebacker Nigel Bradham has been suspended for one game by the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
As a result, Bradham will miss the Bills' season-opener against the Chicago Bears.
The Bills will be thin at the position for the Bears game as Bradham had been penciled in as a starter after Kiko Alonso was lost for the season with a torn ACL.
