Oakland Raiders fullback Marcel Reece has been suspended four games without pay for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
The league announced the ban on Monday, less than a week after Reece was named to his fourth straight Pro Bowl. Reece will miss the season finale Sunday against Kansas City and the first three games in 2016. He is also ineligible for the Pro Bowl next month.
Reece had 10 carries for 36 yards and caught 30 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns this season.
Reece’s suspension means that Dover High School graduate John Kuhn will now be eligible to compete in his second straight Pro Bowl and third overall. Kuhn had been the first alternate for the Pro Bowl.
