Backup RT tackle Jordan Black has been served a four game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance enhancing drugs policy. But Black has a prescription for the drug in question, Adderal. Millions of people are prescribed the drug for a legitimate medical condition, ADHD.
Many of Black’s teammates took to posting their support for Jordan on Twitter yesterday, with the same basic message: Black is no doper.
Today Black himself responded to the league’s allegations.
“Contrary to reports,” Black said, via David Elfin of 106.7 The Fan, “I never gained 50 pounds. Prior to this season, I maintained a playing weight of 310 pounds. I currently weigh 275.2 pounds. I entered camp . . . at 270 pounds. I am the smallest offensive tackle in the NFL. It is not only a lie, but simply ridiculous for anyone to label me as a doper.”
