Eric Wright suspended 4 games, Bucs announce

Jeff Griffith-US PRESSWIRE

Wright is the second Bucs cornerback to be suspended this season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright will be suspended for the next four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Straight from Stroud's Twitter account, Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said: "I'm disappointed he's going to be suspended for four weeks. I'm disappointed this has happened inside our organization."

Wright is the second Buccaneers cornerback suspended this season. Aqib Talib, who was traded to the New England Patriots earlier this month, was suspended four games earlier this season for using Adderall without a prescription.

Wright, 27, has played in 10 games for the Bucs this year. He has 34 tackles, an interception returned for a touchdown, and a fumble recovery.

Wright is in his first season with the Buccaneers. He spent a year with the Detroit Lions last season after spending the first four years of his career with the Cleveland Browns.

Tampa is 6-5 this season. The Bucs travel to play the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
