Redskins tackle Jordan Black still has a game left on his suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy, but that suspension is on hold for the offseason.

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the league confirmed that  Black is eligible to participate in offseason workouts and play in preseason games, assuming he signs with a team.

The backup tackle is an unrestricted free agent, after playing out his one-year deal with the Redskins. He was suspended on Dec. 17, and missed the final three games (including the playoff loss to Seattle).

He’s appealed his suspension, and lost, and denies his weight gain was as dramatic as was reported.
