NFL suspended P Brett Hartmann four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Hartmann did well to keep his violation under wraps because it apparently occurred late last season. He will be eligible to play in Week 4, as one of the games for which Hartmann was banned was the Texans' playoff loss to the Ravens. Hartmann is also recovering from a torn left ACL, suffered in December. The Texans will have to open the season with another punter. Fri, Mar 9, 2012 06:05:00 PM
