Following a big win over the Lions on Thanksgiving Day, both Will Fuller and Bradley Roby were suspended by the league for six games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Each player was aware of the failed test, and both claimed they had taken something they didn’t know was illegal.
This week, former Houston Texan A.J. Bouye, someone who played with Fuller in Houston, was also suspended because of a failed PED test. He’ll also miss the next six games for the Broncos.
NFL Insider Benjamin Allbright was on Sports Radio 610 with Seth Payne earlier today, and he claimed that Bouye, Fuller, and Roby all saw the same medical health professional that led to their failed test.
This story has far reaching implications. Bradley Roby and Will Fuller already. Other involved not yet named. https://t.co/EAXsmYKaV3— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) December 8, 2020
There were legitimate questions that Fuller’s healthy 2020 season could be linked to whatever substance this was. Now, following this, it seems more and more like this was an accident, something passed off by someone who didn’t know what he or she was doing. It will be interesting to see if a lawsuit is actually filed against this unknown medical professional and if any other Texans test positive, here in Houston or elsewhere in the NFL.
