Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cameron Sutton was suspended without pay for the first eight games of the season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, the league announced Monday.

Sutton, 29, signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers in early June after being released by the Detroit Lions on March 21, one day after authorities in Florida announced they were looking for him following allegations of aggravated battery-domestic violence.

That matter was resolved after he entered a pretrial diversion program, allowing Sutton to meet with the Steelers in April. The NFL subsequently completed their own investigation of the incident, resulting in Monday’s suspension ruling.

Sutton will be available to return on October 29, following the team’s Week 8 matchup with the New York Giants.

Sutton started all 17 regular-season games with the Lions, posting 65 tackles, an interception, one forced fumble and six passes defensed. He started Detroit’s three playoff games as well, adding eight tackles and breaking up three passes.

When the suspension ends, Sutton will rejoin the team that selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
