NEW YORK - New Orleans Saints cornerback Keyuo Craver was suspended for four games by the NFL on Tuesday for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

A backup to Ashley Ambrose at right cornerback, Craver has played in all five games this season and registered five tackles. Craver is not eligible to return to the Saints roster until November 3.

It has been a disappointing season for the Saints (1-4), who have been beset by injuries on defense and are tied with Atlanta for last place in the NFC South.
