    Bryant Suspended for Recent Arrest

    The San Francisco 49ers may have an outside chance at a playoff berth, but those already long odds are about to get even longer.

    FOXSports.com has learned that the NFL has hit WR Antonio Bryant with a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy as a result of his arrest on suspicion of drunk driving last month. Bryant will miss the final two games of this season and the first two games of next year. If the Niners make the playoffs, those games will count against the suspension as well.
    Bryant will still be allowed to participate in training camp and with the team in the off-season despite the ban.

    Bryant was arrested last month on suspicion of misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, driving under the influence and resisting arrest after being pulled over in his Lamborghini doing in excess of 100 mph. According to the Associated Press report, "An officer entering U.S. Highway 101 saw Bryant speed past and tried unsuccessfully to catch him," San Mateo police Capt. Kevin Raffaelli said. He radioed another officer who pulled over Bryant.

    Would that mean that, if the Packers make the playoffs, we could get K-Rob back earlier next year? Under the same rules, shouldn't he be allowed to go to training camp as well? Shouldn't that be something that the Packers at least look into?

    I like how there is still a bit of spirit in these teams to try to knock off the Bengals in the JailBowl - the game where you see how many players you can get in jail.
