Hopefully you enjoyed Damontre Moore’s impactful performance against the San Francisco 49ers, because he ain’t gonna be on the field for the next several weeks.

The Seattle Seahawks announced on Monday that the veteran defensive end violated the NFL’s performance-enhancing drugs policy, and as a result he’s suspended until late December.

“Damontre Moore has been suspended six games without pay for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. Moore will be eligible to return to the active roster on Mon., Dec. 14, following the team’s Week 14 game vs. the N.Y. Jets.”

To clarify, Moore can’t play again until December 21st against the Washington Football Team. This leaves an open spot on the roster.

This is Moore’s second league suspension of his career. In 2017 he was banned for two games while with the Dallas Cowboys after he violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy. That suspension stemmed from a DWI arrest while with the Seahawks in 2016. I assume that’s why he’s getting six games for the PEDs instead of the standard four.

Good thing Carlos Dunlap is coming to town soon.
