Analysis: Harvey Steinberg said Prater's suspension was alcohol-related. He said Prater consumed a couple of beers while on vacation in between the end of the team's offseason workout program in June and the start of training camp in late July. Prater has been in the league's substance abuse program since he was charged with DUI on Aug. 12, 2011. An NFL spokesman declined to confirm the suspension, which was first reported by the Denver Post overnight Sunday.
