08/20/16 - DT Marcell Dareus of the Bills said Saturday that he will enter a rehabilitation center.
Earlier this week, the NFL handed Dareus a four-game suspension by the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He will have to sit out a very difficult opening stretch for the Bills -- at the Ravens, home against the Jets and Cardinals, and then at the Patriots.
Dareus sat out the 2015 season opener against Indianapolis as punishment for his initial substance-abuse offense. This second one was the result of a missed test which, according to the NFL, is the same as a positive one.
08/17/16 - DT Marcell Dareus of the Bills said a missed drug test is the reason behind his four-game suspension.
"It was a missed test, but at the same time things got out -- people said this, people said that and I got scolded about it. But at the same time, I know who I have to answer to and that's what it is," Dareus said Wednesday, one day after he was banned for violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
This marks the second time Dareus has violated the NFL's policy. He drew a one-game suspension in 2015 due to an offseason arrest for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. The two-time Pro Bowl selection had just two sacks last season after posting a career-high 10 in 2014, and began training camp on the non-football/illness list, although no condition had been given.
08/16/16 - Buffalo Bills standout defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is facing a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday.
This marks the second time Dareus has violated the policy. He drew a one-game suspension in 2015 due to an offseason arrest for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Dareus signed a six-year, $96.5 million deal with the Bills last year that included $60 million in guaranteed money.
08/16/16 - DT Marcell Dareus has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Dareus will be eligible to return to the active roster on Oct. 3, meaning he will miss a critical opening stretch of games that begins with the Sept. 11 season opener at Baltimore. From there, the Bills play host to the New York Jets - coach Rex Ryan's former team - and reigning NFC West champion Arizona before traveling to play at the New England Patriots in Week 4.
"We are very disappointed Marcell chose to put himself first, before his teammates, coaches, the rest of the organization, and fans through his recent actions," the Bills said in a statement. "From ownership down we have made it clear his behavior is unacceptable. We will continue to take the necessary steps to work with him in order that he adheres to the policies set forth by our league. As an organization, we will move forward with our preparations for the start of the 2016 NFL season in Baltimore on September 11."
