Miami running back Sammy Morris will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's steroid policy, two newspapers reported.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel and the Palm Beach Post, in stories posted on their Web sites after the Dolphins defeated St. Louis 29-9 in their preseason finale, both reported that Morris tested positive during the 2005 season for ephedrine, a banned stimulant.

Team officials declined comment, citing confidentiality policies, and Morris was not available to reporters in the locker room after the game. He had four carries for 3 yards in Miami's win.
