Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cameron Sutton was suspended without pay for the first eight games of the 2024 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, the league announced Monday.

Sutton won't appeal the suspension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He will be eligible for reinstatement on Oct. 29 during Pittsburgh's Week 9 bye. The team visit the Washington Commanders in Week 10.

The NFL began investigating Sutton in early March after authorities issued a warrant for his arrest for domestic battery by strangulation. The Detroit Lions released Sutton on March 21. He turned himself in on March 31 and was charged with misdemeanor battery.

The Steelers, who originally drafted Sutton in the third round in 2017, signed the veteran defensive back to a one-year contract on June 5. The Tennessee product played six seasons with Pittsburgh before joining Detroit for the 2023 campaign.

Sutton has made 101 NFL appearances, including 56 starts. He was expected to compete for a starting role as a member of the Steelers' secondary this season.
