After posting a 77-catch, 1,397-yard season as a senior in 2011, there was hope that Gerell Robinson would find himself among the ranks of those selected in April's NFL Draft.

That didn't happen, but he found his way into the Denver Broncos training camp as an undrafted free agent, but was among the team's final cuts. His NFL journey then took him home to the Valley, when he was signed to the Arizona Cardinals practice squad.

However, his professional hopes took a hit today, when the NFL suspended the 6-foot-2, 227-pound wide receiver for four games. The news was first tweeted by Howard Balzer.

It was later revealed that the suspension arose from Robinson's use of performance enhancing drugs.

The Cardinals will be able to replace him on the practice squad during this suspension, and there is no word on whether an appeal will be filed.
