The NFL suspended Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating its substance-abuse policy. Floyd, who played two games for the Patriots last season after he was waived by the Cardinals at midseason, will be allowed to participate in all preseason practices and games and can return to the active roster Oct. 2. The Vikings’ announcement Friday gave no details of the violation. Last month an Arizona judge ordered Floyd to serve one day in jail for failing alcohol tests after a traffic stop last year in Scottsdale. He blamed the results on a type of fermented tea called kombucha. He pleaded guilty in February to extreme drunken driving with a blood-alcohol level 2½ times over Arizona’s legal limit.
