Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden has been suspended one game by the NFL for violating the league’s personal
conduct policy. That means if Walden makes the Packers 53-man roster, he’ll miss the teams season opener against the San Francisco 49ers on September 9th.
Walden was arrested last Thanksgiving after a dispute with his live-in girlfriend. He would eventually plead no contest to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct-domestic abuse charge.
Walden finished with 60 tackles and 3 sacks last season, but his play declined following the domestic incident.
Walden is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
