Tank Johnson suspended

Defensive end Tank Johnson has been suspended by the  Chicago Bears after being arrested on six misdemeanor firearms charges last week.

Word is the league is pressuring teams to act quickly and decisively when players have gotten in trouble with the law.

League commissioner has personally spoken to the Bengals about keeping their players out of the news.

The affect on the Bears will be little.  Their next game is meaningless and he a number of Bears players could be rested.
