Seattle Seahawks defensive end Damontre Moore was suspended for six games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, the team announced on Monday afternoon.

Moore will be eligible to return for the Seahawks’ final three games of the regular season.

Moore is in his eighth season in the league and his second stint with the Seahawks. The 28-year-old has appeared in all seven games this season, racking up eight total tackles and forcing one fumble.

He played 22 snaps and had two total tackles in their 37-27 win against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

The former Texas A&M standout signed a one-year, $910,000 deal with the Seahawks this year. Moore has bounced from team to team after his initial two-year stop with the New York Giants, who selected him in the third round of the 2013 draft, spending time in Miami, Seattle, Dallas, Oakland and San Francisco before returning to the Seahawks this year.

Moore’s seven games this season marked the most he’s played in a year since he was with the Giants in 2015.
