FILE - In this Oct. 17, 2010 file photo, New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes looks on during the first quarter of a NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The NFL suspended Spikes on Friday, Dec. 10, 2010, for four games without pay for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Spikes, the team's second leading tackler, will miss the rest of the regular season, starting Sunday at the Chicago Bears. The rookie drafted in the second round from Florida will be eligible to rejoin the active roster after the finale at home against Miami, and would be eligible for the playoffs.
