The NFL is making changes to their drug policy and how they go about suspending athletes that violate the rules. One interesting point that sticks out about the rumored changes is the idea that players would be automatically suspended one game for a DUI.
This zero tolerance policy would be used for first time offenders in an attempt to cut down on the number of drunk driving incidents. The current policy calls for a fine of two game checks but no missed time on the field. Under the new policy the offenders would be fined one game check and suspended one game.
