New England Patriots tight end Lance Kendricks has been suspended one game for violating the NFL’s policy on substances of abuse, the league announced Saturday.

Kendricks has been on the roster bubble as the Patriots have had an open competition among several players as they attempt to fill the void created by Rob Gronkowski’s retirement.

The suspension is a result of a 2017 incident in Wisconsin, when Kendricks was cited for marijuana possession as part of a traffic stop.

In July 2019, Kendricks was sentenced to six months’ probation, and if he performed eight hours of community service, the charges would be dismissed.
