Starting Broncos cornerback A.J. Bouye has been suspended six games after testing positive for PED usage. The nature of the PED for which he tested positive has not been made public at time of reporting the suspension.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Wednesday morning.

2020 is Bouye’s first season as a Denver Bronco. Previously, he spent four seasons in Houston, followed by three seasons in Jacksonville. The eight year veteran has 14 interceptions on his career along with 338 combined tackles.
His best season came in 2017 with Jacksonville, in which he racked up six interceptions. Bouye was expected to be an anchor for a defensively-led Broncos team headed up by former Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.
Given Denver’s 4-8 record, this suspension will likely have to carry over into next season, as Week 14 is upcoming and the Broncos are almost certainly going to miss the playoffs. There is no word on whether or not Bouye will appeal at this time.
