Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch has been suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season for using a banned substance, according to reports.

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch has been suspended for the first four games of the 2012 NFL season, according to a league source. The reason for the suspension was initially undisclosed, but Jason La Canfora reports it was due to Moch's use of a banned substance.

Moch was drafted in third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He missed his entire rookie season after breaking his foot, however. This latest setback won't do him any favors in front of the eyes of the Bengals' front office and coaching staff.

Still, Moch has plenty of physical tools at his disposal if the Bengals don't mind waiting. He ran a 4.44-second 40-yard dash at the 2011 NFL Combine, measuring in at 6'2, 241 pounds.
