The Pittsburgh Steelers, in contention for their first division title since 1984, received a blow Monday when tight end Eric Green was suspended for six games for violating the NFL's drug policy. The NFL said that Green had not violated the league's steroid policy, which carries a six-game suspension for first-time offenders. That means that the offense involved other drugs. Although the NFL would not confirm it, this is apparently the second time Green has violated the drug policy.

Tight end Eric Green, the Pittsburgh Steelers' leading receiver, suffered a broken right ankle during practice Friday and probably will be sidelined for the rest of the season. "He went up to catch a pass and was bumped a little," Coach Chuck Noll said. "He came down, his ankle rolled over and it popped." On Aug. 4, the 6-foot-5, 280-pound Green suffered ligament damage in his left knee in the Steelers' first exhibition.
