Metcalf suspended by NFL

Seven-year veteran guard Terrence Metcalf has been suspended by the league without pay for the next four weeks for violating the NFL policy on anabolic steroids and related substances. The suspension begins immediately, meaning the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Metcalf will be eligible to rejoin the Bears on Monday, Nov. 17, the day after the Bears game against the Packers in Green Bay. Metcalf, a third-round pick in 2002, has started 25 games and played in 84, including all six this season in a reserve role. He went to training camp this year as the starting left guard but missed three weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery and lost the job to Josh Beekman.
