The NFL had shifted the Friday-afternoon-before-three-day-July-4th-weekend bad news dump to Thursday. But apparently there was more bad news than one afternoon could hold.

The league has announced that Ravens tight end/receiver Darren Waller has been suspended the first four games of the season for violating the substance-abuse policy.

Waller had two catches for 18 yards last season, in six games.

The bigger question is whether Waller is the first suspension to be announced on Friday afternoon, or the last.
