ESPN reported late Tuesday that Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has been suspended four games for use of amphetamines.

Welker was excused from practice Aug. 20-21 to attend his appeal hearing, sources told ESPN Senior NFL Analyst Chris Mortensen.

Welker tested positive from a sample taken shortly after he attended the Kentucky Derby, according to sources. He argued that the sample was tainted, but told The Denver Post that he does wonder if someone put something in his drink at the Derby.

The Broncos announced that Welker will be suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances. The Broncos open the season Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts. Welker will be eligible to return to the active roster Oct. 6.
Welker practice with the team on Monday but is still not cleared for contact after suffering a concussion on Aug 23.

Why don't these players ever own up to what they've done? "Somebody put something in my drink." Really? At the Kentucky Derby?
