Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (undisclosed) will not play in the team's third preseason game, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: It's not like the veteran Mathis needs the work, and the next time you'll likely see him in an Indy uniform is Week 5 as he will serve a 4-game drug-policy suspension to open the regular season.

Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis was suspended for the first four games of the 2014 season for using a banned substance. Mathis claims to have taken fertility medication, which his doctor informed him would not violate the NFL's substance abuse policy. Mathis appealed his four-game suspension based on his unique circumstances, but his request was refused.
Huddle Up: The veteran Mathis can still get after the passer; his loss will be felt by the Colts. Last year's first-round pick, Bjoern Werner, will be Mathis' likely replacement in the lineup for the first month of the season.
