Patriots Given One-Week Exemption For Jermaine Cunningham

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New England Patriots linebacker Jermaine Cunningham's four-game suspension is over, and the team has been granted a one-week roster exemption.

This means that Cunningham wouldn't count against the 53-man roster unless the Patriots decide to activate him for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

Cunningham was suspended for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The 24-year-old Cunningham has 23 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two fumbles recovered in 11 games this season.
