Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch has been suspended for the first four games of the season because he violated the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
It's another significant setback for a player who has yet to get into a game.
The Bengals drafted him in the third round out of Nevada in 2011. He injured a foot during the preseason, then came down with an illness and was inactive for all 16 regular season games and a playoff loss to Houston. The Bengals also were disappointed with his progress in practice.
Moch can participate in Cincinnati's offseason workouts, training camp and preseason games. Once the season starts, he won't be allowed to be with the team for the first four weeks.

Bengals cornerback Leon Hall is ahead of schedule in his comeback from a torn Achilles tendon and is hoping to be fully recovered by the start of training camp next month.
Hall will be limited to working on the side during the Bengals' three-day minicamp that opened on Tuesday. He said he's running forward and backward without a problem. Hall tore his left Achilles tendon...
Could Newman contribute as a Safety in Mike Zimmer's D?
Mike Zimmer has been nothing less than a Godsend to the Bengals. In his relatively short time in the Queen City, he’s managed to turn the Bengals defense from an annual sore spot and laughing stock to the unit that often single-handedly wins games.
Perhaps most impressively, he’s done it with a hodgepodge of parts...
If a receiver runs the wrong route, Andy Dalton isn't shy about taking him aside and correcting the problem.
The quarterback is more comfortable with his role as a leader entering his second season with the Cincinnati Bengals, taking more responsibility on his inexperienced shoulders. He was so concerned about learning the play book as a rookie last season that he left a lot...
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has asked Pacman Jones to speak at the rookie symposium. He already has his message planned.
If one were to ever get a candid answer out of defensive coordinator, Mike Zimmer about Taylor Mays, you'd probably find out the the ol' ball coach loves the young safety. If you remember, stories circulated about Zimmer standing on the table for the team trade up in the second round to grab Mays in the 2010 draft. When they missed out on him, Zimmer made sure that Bengals...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bengals cornerback Leon Hall is well ahead of schedule in his comeback from a torn Achilles tendon, inspiring hope that he could be ready for the start of training camp next month.
Hall will be limited to working on the side during the Bengals' three-day minicamp that opened on Tuesday at Paul Brown Stadium. Hall tore the left Achilles tendon on Nov. 13, leaving...
With all the talk about picking up a top-end quarterback in the first couple rounds, a player I’ve noticed that has been left out of the discussion is Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton.
Dalton surprised everyone last year by putting up 3,398 passing yards and 20 touchdowns in the 15 games that he started as a rookie. he is only the third rookie quarterback to ever surpass the...
In an interview with Bengals.com, Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said he sees no reason to add a veteran receiver and that he’d be surprised if someone didn’t pan out from the current group. The Bengals currently have a young group of receivers, Brandon Tate, Marvin Jones, Armon Binns, Mohamed Sanu, Jordan Shipley, and Ryan Whalen behind clear #1 receiver AJ Green...

Timm was really upset that Brandon Johnson signed with the Steelers
During his weekly column on Sunday, Dan Pompei with the National Football Post presented a list of the best rookie quarterbacks during the Super Bowl era. You won't find a quarterback who had a better rookie season than the one Dan Marino had with the Miami Dolphins in 1983. Then you get past the next three, from Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger, Carolina's Cam Newton...
The Steelers have signed former Bengals linebacker Brandon Johnson to the 90 man roster. Johnson is a good special teams player. He has never been much of a contributor on defense but has played in every game since he entered the NFL. He is tough guy though who goes all out. Something the Steelers love in their players.
Johnson will likely be battling for a roster spot with...
