Happy 72nd Birthday, Floyd Little!

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans, and Happy Fourth!

The NFL handed down a trio of drug-related suspensions on Thursday.

Backup Chiefs lineman Rokevious Watkins was hit with a four-game penalty for violation of the substance-abuse policy.

If his suspension stands, Watkins will miss KC's Week 2 trip to Denver.

Indianapolis, the Broncos' Week 1 opponent, will also be down a player at SAF@MH.

WR Lavon Brazill faces a full-season ban, also for violation of the substance-abuse policy.

Miami suffered what figures to be the biggest loss, as 2013 first-round DE Dion Jordan was suspended four games for a PED policy violation.

While the Broncos will also host the Dolphins, that matchup won't come until Week 12, long after Jordan's ban will have ended.
