NFL suspends LeGarrette Blount for one game

The NFL has suspended New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount for one game, according to a league spokesman. Blount was already paid a $100,000 roster bonus on March 14. The suspension stems from his arrest on a possession of marijuana charge last year when playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers and running back Le'Veon Bell was arrested for driving under the influence. Blount will lose a $46,875 pay check. Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
