NEW YORK, July 18 (UPI) -- The National Football League announced Thursday Indianapolis tight end Weslye Saunders would be suspended for half of the 2013 season.

Saunders was suspended for a second offense involving the NFL's policy concerning performance enhancing drugs. He missed the first four games of the 2012 campaign for a similar violation.
