    Colts place LB on suspended list
    By MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer
    August 30, 2005 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts placed linebacker Kendyll Pope on the reserve-suspended list Monday for an NFL-imposed penalty.

    Colts coach Tony Dungy, citing confidentiality issues, declined to comment on the length or reason for the suspension. NFL spokesman Gregg Aiello said he could not comment on the matter, but that the league is expected to make a statement Wednesday.

    ``That's a disappointing one,'' Dungy said. ``Kendyll was doing very well, he was doing things we thought he could do and that's very disappointing to us.''




    The Colts were hoping Pope, a second-year player from Florida State, would help solidify their linebacking corps. Now Pope will start this season the same way he did last year -- watching his teammates.

    Pope spent most of last season on the physically unable to perform list with a torn hip flexor. He wasn't activated until the final two games when he made three tackles.

    In training camp, he was slowed by a shoulder injury.

    Pope is the second Colts player to draw a league-imposed suspension this season. Starting safety Mike Doss will miss the first two games for violating the league's policy on personal conduct. He pleaded guilty in June to a misdemeanor gun charge.

    The Colts also claimed safety Dexter Reid off waivers from New England. Reid is a second-year player who was an intriguing prospect for the Colts.

    ``He's a physical guy, who is a good special teams player,'' Dungy said. ``He's a good guy and a good athlete and we'll get a chance to see what he can do, for a few days at least.''
    Hmmm Steroids ?....I wonder.. we could ill afford lose a LB

    INDIANAPOLIS COLTS LINEBACKER KENDYLL
    (KEN-DILL) POPE WAS SUSPENDED FOR ONE YEAR BY THE N-F-L FOR
    VIOLATING THE LEAGUE'S SUBSTANCE-ABUSE POLICY.

    THE SUSPENSION IS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY AND WAS ANNOUNCED THIS
    AFTERNOON. NEITHER THE COLTS NOR THE N-F-L SAID WHAT POPE TESTED
    POSITIVE FOR. A MESSAGE WAS LEFT BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AT THE
    OFFICE OF POPE'S AGENT, GEORGE MAVRIKES (MAV-REEK-IS).

    POPE, A SECOND-YEAR LINEBACKER, WAS EXPECTED TO BE A CONTRIBUTOR
    ON THE COLTS DEFENSE THIS SEASON AFTER MISSING MOST OF LAST YEAR
    WITH A HIP FLEXOR INJURY. HE HAD ALSO BEEN SLOWED IN TRAINING CAMP
    BY A SHOULDER INJURY.

    COLTS SAFETY MIKE DOSS RECEIVED A TWO-GAME SUSPENSION IN JUNE
    FOR VIOLATING THE LEAGUE'S PERSONAL CONDUCT POLICY.

    So, this means that he has tested positive three times, right? Has anyone ever heard of him testing positive for anything before? Do they not disclose that?

    That's what I was wondering. I haven't heard of any Colt getting busted for drugs. He must of been doing something really naughty. This doesn't sound like your normal weed suspension.

    Maybe he was on the receiving end of Jamaal Lewis' cocaine.

    We are starting to look like the Raiders here. Guns and drugs and football. WEEEEE!

    So, the first two suspensions were not announced?

    That's kinda weird...

    Well, a great start to a great year!
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Maybe we can make a section of our endzone called the 'Blue hole' or something like that
