    Starting inside linebacker Stephen Cooper faces a four-game suspension because of a positive drug test, sources confirmed Tuesday. Neither Cooper nor his agent was immediately available for comment, but several sources said Cooper tested positive for illicit drugs. The drugs were not performance-enhancing, the sources said.

    “It's a league matter,” General Manager A.J. Smith said, declining to confirm or deny Cooper's positive test.

    According to sources, Cooper has appealed the suspension. But numerous people familiar with the situation said Cooper is expected to miss the season's first four games.

    That's just freaking great. Probably why AJ's "spider senses" told him to bring in Derek Smith.

    I guess Waters is going to get his shot a lot sooner than we all thought.

    I hope he's ready.

    Goddammit Cooper.

    Come on look at his size you guys- dude is doing everything he can to hang. Let the facts come out before we judge.

    Coop leaves it all out on the field which is all we can ask.

    Such is the culture we accept folks (just ask Denver, San Fran and NE).

    Bling folks that's all we ask.

    If it's something like blow, we all should be alot more worried about who he hangs out with (Merriman). Coke heads hang out with other coke heads.

    If it's weed, shame on him for stupid enough to get caught.

    Another wrinkle to this is that Cooper was supposed to wear the defensive radio, and call the defensive formations.

    I guess that job now falls on Wilhelm. I hope he studies like hell.

    Says who? In the sense that everybody competes, no one is assured a starting spot... But being the incumbent, I would bet money that barring injury, Wilhelm's job is secure.

    The door has opened up for Waters. Take advantage young padawan. Siler might get a chance as well, a good opportunity for the young guys.

    If we have a player on the roster that is capable of "pulling a Cromartie" in his 2nd pro year - Waters is the man. ;)

    If it's pot, Roger Goodell really can't do anything to Cooper after he let Travis "second hand smoke" Henry walk without a suspension.

    Dan Connor is starting to look like a sexier pick to me.
    Screw Cooper, I've never been impressed by him.

    In fact, put him on the block and see what we can get for him. Probably a 3rd.

    I can't see there being much of a market for a suspended player, Pacman has loads more talent and will end up being had for a 5th rounder probably. It's best to just let him serve his suspension and earn has spot back into the D

    According to NFL.com:
