ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins cornerback Cedric Griffin has been suspended four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Griffin's suspension was announced Tuesday and begins immediately. He will miss the rest of the regular season and be eligible to return to the active roster on Dec. 31, following the team's Dec. 30 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Griffin signed a one-year deal with a $1.25 million salary with the Redskins in March after six seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. The 30-year-old defensive back has been a regular in nickel packages and has 33 tackles and a forced fumble. He also missed three games with a hamstring injury.
