Reports: Raiders CB Nevin Lawson suspended two games

Las Vegas Raiders cornerback Nevin Lawson has been suspended for the first two games of the upcoming season for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy, multiple media outlets reported.

Lawson, who signed a one-year contract for $1.9 million with the Raiders last month, will miss the season opener for the third straight year.

Lawson, 29, received a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances prior to the 2019 season opener. He also received a one-game ban for using his helmet as weapon in the 2019 season finale against the Denver Broncos, causing him to miss the first game of the 2020 campaign.

Lawson collected a career-high 61 tackles to go along with four pass deflections, two forced fumbles and one sack in 14 games (nine starts) last season. He has 290 tackles, 34 pass deflections, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 88 games (68 starts) with the Detroit Lions and Raiders.

Lawson had four interceptions as a college senior at Utah State in 2013 before being a fourth-round pick by the Lions in 2014.

Report: WR Corey Coleman suspended six games

Free-agent wide receiver Corey Coleman has been suspended six games by the NFL for violating its performance-enhancing drug policy, the NFL Network announced Tuesday.

Coleman, 26, was released by the New York Giants in September and sat out the entire season.

The Cleveland Browns selected Coleman with the 15th overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft and traded him to Buffalo on Aug. 5, 2018, for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick. He was released less than a month later.

Coleman then signed with New England but was released after less than a week; the Patriots later re-signed him to the practice squad. He was released nine days later when they acquired another former Browns receiver in Josh Gordon.

The Giants signed him to the practice squad in 2018, and he wound up playing in eight games and catching just five passes for 71 yards. New York was counting on his contribution in 2019, but he tore an ACL on the first day of practice and missed the season.

Coleman has 61 receptions for 789 yards and five touchdowns in 27 career NFL games.

Titans suspend first-round rookie OL Wilson

The Tennessee Titans suspended rookie offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson for Sunday’s game for violating club rules one week after the first-round pick made his debut.

Wilson had already been declared out for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. He was added to the injury report and did not practice Thursday or Friday with an illness.

Saturday’s suspension is the culmination of a disappointing season for Wilson, who was arrested for a DUI in September and has had two stints on the reserve/COVID-19 list. One came during training camp and the other in September when he was arrested.

The team took Wilson No. 29 overall out of Georgia in this year’s draft.

The Titans on Saturday also elevated OL Marshall Newhouse and linebacker Tuzar Skipper as a COVID-19 replacement.

Wilson played just three offensive snaps in last week’s win over the Indianapolis Colts.
