Vikings CB Jabari Price Suspended Two Games

Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that Vikings CB Jabari Price has been suspended two games for violating substance-abuse policy.

This marks the third suspension announced today.

The NFL has released a statement regarding Price’s ban:

Jabari Price of the Minnesota Vikings has been suspended without pay for the first two games of the 2015 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. 

Price will be eligible to return to the Vikings’ active roster on Monday, September 21, following the team’s September 20 game against the Detroit Lions.

Price is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.

Price, 22, plead guilty to a careless driving charge following a December DWI arrest.

The Vikings used a seventh-round pick on him back in May of last year. He still has three years remaining on his four-year, $2,281,820 rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $510,000 for the 2015 season.

Last year, Price appeared in 14 games for the Vikings and recorded 10 tackles.
