National Football League: Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris has been suspended one game for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy, the league announced Tuesday.
He will remain eligible to participate in offseason and preseason practices and games but will miss the Chiefs regular-season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sept. 9. He can return the following day.
In March, Harris served two days in jail after reaching a plea deal for a marijuana arrest in Bates County, Mo., last year. In that incident, Harris was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
