Bouye becomes the latest NFL player this season to get suspended for using performance-enhancing drugs. Houston Texans star wideout Will Fuller was suspended by the league last week and it is believed Bouye's situation is connected to his, per Mike Klis of 9News.

AJ Bouye has appeared in seven games this season for the Broncos. He has zero interceptions and 21 solo tackles in his first campaign with Denver after playing the previous three years with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Bouye began his career with the Texans and played four seasons in Houston. He made the Pro Bowl in 2017 as a member of the Jaguars.
The Broncos' top three corners are now all out. Bryce Callahan will miss the next two games with a foot injury and Essang Bassey is out for the season with a knee ailment.
It's possible Bouye could miss the remainder of the campaign as well for the Broncos, who are 4-8 and won't make the playoffs. Denver is in third place in the AFC West division after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.
The Broncos have four games left in the season. They'll face the Carolina Panthers, Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders.
