Tampa Bay cornerback Torrie Cox will miss the first four games of 2007 due to an NFL suspension.

Torrie Cox of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been suspended without pay for the team's first four regular-season games of 2007 for violating the NFL Substance Abuse Policy.

Cox is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
