The Giants won’t have Ryan Anderson for the first six games of the regular season. That is, of course, if he even earns a spot on the final roster.
The organization announced Saturday the outside linebacker violated the NFL Policy and Program on Performance Enhancing Substances and will be suspended without pay. He can still play in the team’s third and final preseason matchup with the Patriots Sunday night, but afterward, can’t be back on the active roster until Monday, Oct. 18.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network additionally revealed a statement from Anderson’s agent, Chad Wiestling, on Saturday.
