ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — It looks like the Buffalo Bills will be down a linebacker for the first few weeks of the 2022 season.

According to Ian Rapoport, linebacker Andre Smith has been suspended for the first six games. The NFL Network insider cites performance enhancing drugs as the reason.

Hours after the initial report, Smith took to Twitter and claimed he has and will never take PED.

Last season with the Bills, Smith appeared in 15 games - mostly on special teams - and had 10 combined tackles. He signed a new two-year deal last March.
