Bears safety Deiondre' Hall has been suspended for the first game of the regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
Hall, who is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games, will not be permitted to play the Bears' regular season opener Sept. 9 in Green Bay. He would then be allowed to rejoin the team the next day.
Selected by the Bears in the fourth round of the 2016 draft out of Northern Iowa, Hall has appeared in 10 games—all as a reserve—in two seasons, registering seven tackles, one interception and two special-teams tackles. He is currently listed second on the Bears' depth chart at one safety position behind Adrian Amos.
