Redskins Players Take to Twitter to Defend Suspended Teammate, Jordan Black

New, comments

Both Jordan Black and his teammates sound off on the NFL's drug policy.

Update 1:23PM:

First, let's start off with what Jordan Black had to say on his four-game suspension for violating the NFL drug policy...some strong words:

"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."

Jordan Black's teammates agree:

Like most people, I have no clue what the NFL drug policy is. Players can take HGH, but not Adderall? I'll reach out to my NFLPA friends for more info regarding this matter and will update the post accordingly.
