Arizona Cardinals running back Javarris James has been suspended for the first four games of the 2013 NFL season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. 

The University of Miami product, who has not played in a NFL game since 2010, will be allowed to participate in offseason and preseason activities with the Red Birds.

The 25-year old James spent last season on injured reserve after suffering a torn ACL in Arizona's preseason finale against the Denver Broncos on Aug. 30. He played in 10 games for the Indianapolis Colts in 2010, rushing for 112 yards on 46 carries. He also scored six touchdowns. 

James was arrested in June 2011 in Fort Myers, FL, for misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was released a short time later after posting a $1,000 bond  and was subsequently  waived by the Colts. He is the cousin of former NFL star running back Edgerrin James.

James also played for the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins in 2010 as a practice squad player. He is a native of Immokalee, FL.
