NFL issues two game suspension to chiefs DE Frank Clark for violating personal conduct policy

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark has been suspended for two games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. The suspension will begin after Kansas City’s bye in Week 8, with Clark missing home games against the Titans and Jaguars.

Clark’s suspension stems from him pleading no contest in September to two counts of misdemeanor possession of an assault weapon in separate incidents in 2021. Clark pled no contest to both charges, and was sentenced to one year of probation and 40 hours of community service. In March of 2021, Clark was arrested after he was pulled over in a vehicle without a license and a police officer noticed a weapon in the vehicle and recovered two loaded firearms.

The 29-year-old Clark was then arrested in June of 2021 for felony possession of a concealed firearm. Both arrests took place in Los Angeles. Clark has a previous arrest in 2014 on suspicion of domestic violence due to an incident in an Ohio. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct.

Clark, who joined the Chiefs after being traded by the Seahawks prior to the 2019 season, has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons. He has three sacks and four tackles for loss in seven games this year, and has started 47 games for Kansas City over the past four seasons.
