Panthers defensive tackle Andre Neblett has been suspended four games after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Andre Neblett has been suspended four games after testing postive for performance-enhancing drugs, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Neblett is eligible to participate in preseason games, but won't be able to play during the regular season until Week 5.

Neblett is entering his third season in the NFL after being signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Panthers in 2010 out of Temple. He became a regular part of the rotation along the defensive line last season, appearing in 12 games and recording 23 total tackles with 2.5 sacks. Neblett is hardly indispensable, however, making the suspension a potentially damaging one to the young player's career.
