@adamschefter Doctor prescribed medication for a diagnosis the NFL and team have been aware of. This is a failure of the system...NOT DOPING— Jordan Black (@jordanblack78) December 18, 2012
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:
Jordan Black is no doper. Very unfortunate to see him labeled as one.— Tom Compton (@TomCompton76) December 18, 2012
Don't trust everything you hear about Jordan Black. I know for a fact he isn't the doper he's accused of being.— Josh LeRibeus (@JLeRibeus) December 18, 2012
Jordan Black's suspension is a faux attempt by the nfl to appear to care about players safety(cont). He's getting screwed over paperwork.— Chris Chester (@chesterchris66) December 18, 2012
I really hate to c Jordan labeled as doper/cheater when that's def not the case. After the last decade he spent contributing to this league— Trent Williams (@TrentW71) December 18, 2012
And to see Jordan get screwed over is really disheartening SMDH total disgrace— Trent Williams (@TrentW71) December 18, 2012
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.
