NFL: The NFL has suspended Packers receiver Geronimo Allison without pay for the season opener on Sept. 10 against Seattle for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. The league said in a statement on Wednesday that Allison would be eligible for all preseason practices and games. He would be eligible to return from his Week 1 suspension on Sept. 11. Allison was charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession last September stemming from a traffic stop in Manitowoc County. He reached a plea deal with prosecutors in April, paying $330 to settle the charge after it was amended to a local violation. Allison had 12 catches for 202 yards and two scores last season, with eight catches over the final two regular-season games.
The Chicago Bears have signed quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, their first-round draft pick and the No. 2 overall selection in April. He is not expected to start this season. Veteran Mike Glennon was signed in the offseason to take over for the departed Jay Cutler, and he gives the Bears time to develop Trubisky.
