Indianapolis Colts tight end Weslye Saunders, who sat out the first four games of last season  for violating the NFL's banned substance policy, has been suspended again for another PED violation, per ProFootballTalk.

Saunders will miss the first eight games of the 2013 season for the violation. He played in 11 games for Indy last year with four starts.

A third violation was mean a one-year suspension, and Saunders would have to apply to the NFL for reinstatement.
