The Colts got some unfortunate news on Thursday evening when the NFL announced that tight end Weslye Saunders has been suspended for the first eight games of the 2013 season.
Saunders played in six games last season for the Colts and caught two passes for 15 yards.
Wilson spoke with Saunders last year about a previous four-game suspension that the third-year tight end had with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“It’s something that was unfortunate, probably led to my dismissal in Pittsburgh,” he said at the time. “It was a mistake that I made, taking adderall, something obviously a lot of people are objecting about right now. But I don’t have anything to say about it right now because my suspension is over. I served my suspension and I’m ready to get back it now.”
