INDIANAPOLIS, IN (The Spread) – The NFL has suspended one of the best pass-rushers for four games next year but his team’s Super Bowl odds remain unchanged.

Late last week the NFL suspended Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing drugs. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Mathis tested positive for a fertility drug called Clomid, which is on the league’s banned substance list. The pass-rusher can participate in offseason practices and preseason games, but won’t be elgible to return to game action until Week 5.

Mathis and his wife were reportedly trying to get pregnant and were having trouble. Mathis claims that his doctor told him that he wouldn’t have any issues with Clomid but because the linebacker failed to clear the drug with the league, he has accepted the four-game ban.

Despite losing their best defender, the Colts’ 2015 Super Bowl odds have remained unchanged. According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Colts are currently 20/1 to win the 2015 Super Bowl, which was their odds before Mathis’ suspension. Back in February, Indy opened with 28/1 odds to win next year’s NFL title.

Second-year defender Bjoern Werner is expected to start at outside linebacker while Mathis serves a four-game suspension. He’ll have big shoes to fill for those first four games seeing as how Mathis racked up 19.5 sacks last season.
