New Orleans Saints nickel cornerback PJ Williams has been suspended 2 games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, the NFL announced today.

The league released the following statement:

"P.J. Williams of the New Orleans Saints has been suspended without pay for the team’s next two games for violating the NFL’s policy and program on substances of abuse.

 The suspension begins immediately. Williams will be eligible to return to the Saints’ active roster on Monday, October 28, following the team’s Week 8 game vs. Arizona."

Williams' suspension stems from his DUI arrest last January. He pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of reckless operation of a motor vehicle in August.
