Geronimo Allison suspended for first game of regular season

When the Green Bay Packers open the 2017 regular season against the Seahawks, they won’t have receiver Geronimo Allison.

The league has announced that Allison has been suspended for one game under the substance-abuse policy. The suspension undoubtedly traces to the resolution of marijuana possession charges following an arrest in September 2016.

Allison appeared in 10 games with two starts a year ago, catching 12 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns.

He’ll be eligible to participate in training camp and the preseason, and he’ll be eligible to return the Monday after the season-opening game against Seattle.

  1. But, but, but, he doesn’t play for the Cowboys. No other team in the league has players with off the field issues. This has to be a bogus story.

  2. Could a day go by without another story about a Packer being arrested or suspended?

  3. From Murphy/Thompson all the way to the bottom simpleton “I’m an owner!” Packer fan I gotta say that this organization is a complete ongoing joke.

  4. He gets 1 game for possession; but, Josh Gordon has his career taken away for a positive test.

    We all knew the Refs took it easy on the Packers… now the league office too.

  5. Geronimo…….there goes the Cheeeeeesers season!
    Now if the NFL could only admit that Clay Mathews should be kicked out of the league for YEARS of PED’s!

  6. He wasn’t thinking. He should’ve said he was impaired from drinking tea.

    Done deal.

    Sometimes it seems that way. At that rate they might catch the Vikings by the end of the month.

  8. I’m sure he was going to be the difference maker in week 1… I’ll always have hope for the Seahawks in any game because they can show up big time, but if they win in week 1, it’ll be a win I didn’t count on when looking over the schedule. Here’s to hoping!

  9. Geronimo Allison is so happy because this means an extra week in the WRs room with uninterrupted video game play without all that annoying football that gets in the way of the Green Bay WR’s video game time.

  10. Watch viking fans turn an article about the #5 WR for the Packers into one of the most commented-on articles of the week!

    I do like him though, and I hope he stays with the team. Everyone knows that the next stop for any Packer that gets released is in Minnesota, and I’d hate to see this guy in purple (although he’d immediately become the best WR on their team).

  11. There is something about this kid when you see him in the field. Great hands, seems to run crisp, fluid routes and Aaron already trusts him. He’s got that “it” factor and it’ll be fun watching him play this year.

  12. GA will make the team barring injury. GB will cut receivers the Vikings will sign. That is a talent deficit that the original Vikings couldn’t match.

    With the second most wins in the last 11 years of all 32 teams, the Pack are fine. The joke in the league is the Vikings. If their receivers spent any time with their QBs, the playbook, and film study, instead of on the love boat, maybe their fans wouldn’t be wondering why their receivers are complete jokes – no matter who they are.

  14. The Packers have quietly had a lot of arrests and suspensions lately involving drugs, alcohol and PED’s from both current and former players. Allison, Guion, Dorleant, Pennel, Demetri Goodson, Jarrett Bush, Datone Jones were all in the past 2 or 3 seasons.

    …………..which, somehow, continues to own the Vikings.

  16. Vikingsvoice – not exactly a list of difference makers. Glad you took one of them in Datone.

    Allison will hopefully learn from this mistake. Thinks he got a lot of potential.

  17. this can’t be! the packers are an immaculate establishment that experiences nothing but pureness!
