The NFL has suspended 49ers long snapper Kyle Nelson for the next 10 weeks of the regular season, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

The 49ers appeared to know a punishment for Nelson was imminent, though the specifics of his suspension have not yet been disclosed. Last week, the team worked out five long snappers, according to longtime sports reporter Howard Balzer.

Nelson is slated to enter free agency after the 2018 season concludes. He will be suspended for the first six regular season games he plays beyond the current season.
