Colts Robert Mathis Suspended Four Games

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN is reporting that the NFL has suspended Colts defensive lineman Robert Mathis for four games violating the league's ban on performance-enhancing substances.
quote:

The Colts' career sacks leader was suspended Friday by the NFL after violating the league's ban on performance-enhancing substances. The linebacker said in a statement he was seeking fertility assistance. He acknowledged that he and his wife are expecting a baby.

Mathis will be eligible to return to the Colts' active roster on Monday, Sept. 29, following the team's Sept. 28 game against the Tennessee Titans.
Mathis released this statement Friday:
quote:

"It is difficult for me to address the circumstances surrounding this suspension because they involve very personal medical information, but it is very important to me that my fans, particularly young people, understand what did and did not occur. Like many families, my wife and I faced fertility challenges, and I sought medical assistance. I specifically asked the doctor if the medication he prescribed for me would present a problem for NFL drug testing, and unfortunately, he incorrectly told me that it would not. I made the mistake of not calling the NFL or NFLPA to double-check before I took the medication at the end of last season...."

Don't know why, but I trust this guy. Mathis is a victim. I believe this still fall out from goodell over the Colts losing to the Saints in the Super Bowl.
