Deaderick Suspended?

ESPN Boston is reporting that rookie DL Brandon Deaderick has been placed on the reserve/suspended list, which would make him (I believe) ineligible for the playoffs. Deaderick has seen game-time this season despite being a 7th round pick, including four starts. His final stats on the year are 17 tackles and 2 sacks. No word at the time this was written on why he was suspended and whether it’s a league suspension or a team suspension. This deals a blow to the team’s depth on the defensive line, which was already an issue.

In related news, rookie ILB Brandon Spikes returned today from his four-week suspension and the team officially put DL Ron Brace on the injured reserve list, ending his season. Putting Brace on IR made a roster spot available for the returning Spikes.

Stay tuned for more on Deaderick as news becomes available.
