ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Bills running back Marshawn Lynch will
miss the first three games of the regular season after being suspended without pay by the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

The NFL announced the suspension Thursday, a month after Lynch pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge in Los Angeles. It was the player's second run-in with the law, following a hit-and-run accident in Buffalo in May.

The suspension means the Bills will be without the 2007 first-round draft pick for their prime-time season-opener at New England on Sept. 14. The rest of the Bills schedule has not been released.

Lynch apologized for his actions, and anticipated he'd be suspended after meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell last month.
