Raiders second-year wide receiver Andre Holmes was suspended for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to an NFL press release Saturday.
Practice is starting right now, so the release will have to suffice for now:

NFL press release

“Andre Holmes of the Oakland Raiders has been suspended without pay for the team’s first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Holmes will be eligible to return to the Raiders’ active roster on Monday, September 30 following the team’s September 29 game against the Washington Redskins.

Holmes is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.”

    A’s will win the World Series
    Nah bro. Dodgers. You can make it. We’ll win.

    Hopefully you guys don’t collapse again like last year
    It’s because we always start off great then fizzle out. This time we are picking up at the perfect time.

    — cool , gonna be hard to get past St. Louis with thee pitching and 5 hitters over .300
    That’s the only worry we have right now.

    But good teams find a way to deal with them
    Haven’t been good for a decade now

    , we’ll see, if we’re a good team n find ways to deal with injuries this year or if we suck and let injuries make us even worse
    The expectations are already low.
