Linebacker Jerrell Freeman on Monday became the second Chicago Bears player suspended for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy in two weeks.
Freeman was suspended for four weeks and is eligible to return to practice Dec. 19 to prepare for the Dec. 24 home game against the Washington Redskins. Freeman, in his first year in Chicago after signing as a free agent, leads the Bears with 69 tackles and with 22 assists.
 
Last week, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was suspended four games for the same violation and will be eligible to return for the Dec. 18 game against Green Bay.
