Chiefs’ starting right cornerback Bashaud Breeland is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy of substances of abuse, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 19, 2020
Breeland expected to miss games against Texans, Chargers, Ravens and Patriots.
Shefter’s August 19 note matches NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero’s from April.
#Chiefs CB Bashaud Breeland -- who was arrested Tuesday on multiple charges, including marijuana possession -- was already facing a four-game suspension for a separate violation of the substance-abuse policy, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. Breeland is appealing.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) April 29, 2020
Later Wednesday afternoon, Breeland acknowledged the suspension by posting a video and apology note to his official Instagram channel.
BREELAND: As previously announced by the league, I have received a 4 game suspension for off-the-field matters.
I post this today because I want to apologize, publicly, to the entire Chiefs organization, my coaches, teammates, family and fans.
I accept full responsibility for my actions, and I look forward to getting back on the field with my teammates to defend our Super Bowl Title.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support, and Let’s Go Chiefs!
