Vikings' Mike Zimmer to Michael Floyd: If you're lying, I'll cut you

Former New England Patriots wide receiver and current Minnesota Viking Michael Floyd was suspended for the first four games of the season, according to a report from ESPN's Field Yates.

Floyd was arrested for an extreme DUI previous year, and he ended up serving time in jail before being released.

Floyd claimed the positive test was a result of consuming kombucha tea, not realizing the beverage contained alcohol. The question was whether the suspension would be two, four or six games.

Floyd was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the first round in 2012, but was cut by the team after a DUI arrest in December of past year.

The Minnesota Vikings are going to be down a receiver when the 2017 season begins.

Based on National Football League rules, Floyd is still able to practice and play in games during the preseason. "I have no clue", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said this week before the suspension was handed down. "I don't have any doubt why there'd be scepticism, but he told me that he wasn't (drinking)". His blood-alcohol level was.217 when police arrested him after finding him asleep at a traffic light behind the wheel of his running vehicle. In addition to jail time, he was ordered not to drink alcohol, undergo alcohol counseling, perform 30 hours of community service and pay a fine of $5,115.99.
