Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch didn't see the field in 2011, and is now facing a four-game suspension.

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch has been suspended four games for using a banned substance, according to a report by NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.

Moch, a third-round pick by the Bengals in the 2011 NFL Draft, can still appeal the suspension.

Moch did not see the field for Cincinnati in 2011. A foot injury kept the Nevada product out of commission for the first four games of the regular season, and migraines contributed to him missing the rest of the year. Despite not having Moch, their highest defensive selection of the 2011 NFL Draft, Cincinnati's defense was among the NFL's most improved, rising from 24th in scoring defense in 2010 to ninth in the league in 2011.

That improvement helped the Bengals claim one of the AFC's two wild card playoff spots, though it could not get them a playoff win.
