Default Browns receiver Josh Gordon suspended 2 games

Violating league substance abuse policy
Also docked 2 more game checks
Per scoremobile app
It could have been longer if they counted his college failed tests

Can someone please explain to me why the NFL does not release what they tested positive for? Pretty much letting the athletes make up whatever BS story they want.

NFLPA negotiated that.

Of note generally...
Quote:
Absent a violation of the law, a suspension under the substance-abuse policy happens only if a player commits multiple violations. For players like Josh Gordon...thats a lot of violations to rack up in only one year.

Once a player is in the substance-abuse program, he knows hes going to be tested. To end up getting suspended means that he has continued to test positive even when he knows hes going to be tested unless, of course, the subsequent violations come from failing to comply with the testing requirements.

That would be revealing private medical information. Can't do it without player consent.

Speaking of which, PFT reports Josh Gordon says he took cough medicine containing Codeine.
Quote:
In February, I was diagnosed with strep throat for which a doctor prescribed antibiotics and cough medicine. Apparently, the medicine I took contained codeine, which is prohibited by the NFL policy, Gordon said in the statement.

Josh Gordon faces season long suspension
Updated: May 9, 2014, 6:05 PM ET
By T.J. Quinn and Don Van Natta Jr. | ESPN.com
Quote:
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon could face a season-long suspension after a second failed drug test months ago, this time for marijuana, sources told "Outside the Lines" on Friday.

Reached by phone Friday afternoon, Gordon said: "That's something you're going to have to talk to [agent] Drew Rosenhaus about. I really don't know anything about it."

Josh Gordon could face a season-long suspension after a second failed drug test months ago, this time for marijuana, sources told "Outside the Lines."

Asked whether he planned an appeal of his suspension and test, Gordon said, "I'm going to have to find out about that later. You need to call Drew," before hanging up.

Gordon's had the habit forever now. Don't know if he'll ever be able to can it.

Josh Gordon will dispute test results, as @profootballtalk also reported, and argue they came from 2nd-hand smoke. http://es.pn/1k5PRyU
