If WR Ed Gant had any illusions about making the Arizona Cardinals 53-man roster this year, his chances took a big hit today when the NFL announced that he’s suspended for the first four games of this season because of a violation of its policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Gant spent all last season on the practice squad, and as the Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers points out, coach Ken Whisenhunt wasn’t exactly Gant’s biggest fan.
Gant can work in training camp and can be used in preseason games before the suspension starts. Chances are good, though, he won’t be around for too much longer.
