National Football League roundup
(The Sports Xchange) - Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Haloti Ngata has been suspended for the remainder of the regular season by the NFL for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
The league does not release the details of the failed test that triggered the suspension, but Ngata said he took Adderall, which requires a prescription on record with the NFL because it is on the league's list of banned substances.
The disappointing 2014 season apparently is over for Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 pick in the draft.
Coach Bill O'Brien announced that Clowney will be placed on injured reserve because of a right knee injury. Clowney is scheduled to have another surgery on that knee.
Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore said he was fined $22,050 by the NFL for a hit he put on Arizona Cardinals receiver Jaron Brown on Sunday. Moore said he would appeal.
Moore led with the crown of his helmet on the hit, which is why he was fined. Moore had missed the previous seven games with a shoulder injury.
