  Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Suspended

The NFL has suspended Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker on Tuesday for four games after he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug, reportedly a stimulant.

Welker, a powerful part of the NFL’s most productive scoring attack in history, will be a free agent at the end of the season. He just returned to practice on Monday after suffering a concussion during a pre-season game against Houston, his third concussion in the past 10 months. Welker will resume playing when the Broncos visit the New York Jets on October 12. He will lose the games at home against Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City, a rematch at Seattle Seahawks, and at home against Arizona on October 5.

It is rumored that the failed test of Walker could be because of him having ingested “molly” – MDMA, also known as ecstasy – at the Kentucky Derby in May. Welker was even clicked handing out $100 bills to strangers after having won $50,000 at Churchill Downs. However, Welker denied the Molly report and remarked he would not have any idea where to get a Molly, or what a Molly is. Walker went on to say that he does not do drugs and added he is as shocked as everyone at the news. Welker said he would never knowingly take a substance to gain a competitive advantage in any way. The fans of NFL are not to such denials. Last month, Dallas Cowboys’ Orlando Scandrick gave a similar excuse after he tested positive for amphetamines.

The use of performance enhancing and recreational drugs is not new to NFL.

Bill “Spaceman” Lee used to sprinkle marijuana on his Buckwheat pancakes. In the NFL of the 1970s and 80s, the Dallas Cowboys linebacker Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson was known to keep a liquid inhaler filled with a mixture of cocaine and water in his pants and had a habit of spraying into his mouth throughout the game.

In a remarkably frank 2010 interview with the Boston Globe, Boston Red Sox’s Bernie Carbo admitted that he smoked two joints, drank about 3-4 beers, used amphetamines, took a pain killer, drank a cup of coffee, chewed tobacco, and had a cigarette before he hit the three-run home run against the Cincinnati Reds in the eighth inning of Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. Carbo was eventually traded by Red Sox after the team learned he used to toss baseballs into the stands during batting practice in exchange for joints (marijuana).

In 2009, USA Swimming suspended Michael Phelps who was fresh off conquering a record eight gold medals in a single Olympics in Beijing the year before, from competition for a period of three months after a photograph of him smoking from a “marijuana pipe” emerged. In a statement explaining the ban, USA Swimming didn’t made attempts to argue that the doping of Phelps was meant to give him an edge over his competitors. It was remarked by USA Swimming that we decided to send a strong message to Michael because he disappointed so many people, particularly the hundreds of thousands of USA Swimming member kids who look up to him as a role model and hero.

Erik Ainge enters rehabilitation facilityErik Ainge, the New York Jets backup quarterback, recently entered a drug treatment, rehabilitation facility for “recreational issues.”

It was disclosed by a team source to the Daily News that the Jets are extremely disappointed in what looks to be a relapse for the quarterback and do not have a timetable for Ainge’s return.

With uncertainty around the return of Ainge, fellow quarterback Kellen Clemens and Kevin O’Connell will be battling out for the final quarterback spot.

new-york-jets-steroidsAs a consequence for a second suspension off their roster, the New York Jets faces a fine from the National Football League under a newly adopted policy.

Jets rookie quarterback Erik Ainge tested positive for a banned diuretic and was slapped with a four-game suspension for violating NFL’s steroids and related substances policy.

Ainge’s teammate Jesse Chatman was the first to commit doping infraction when he tested positive for bumetanide. He was penalized with a four-game suspension without pay a week prior the start of the season.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones has figured in several run-ins with authorities with the recent one taking place last month at a Dallas hotel in what one news article has described as “an alcohol-related scuffle with a bodyguard”. Pacman was suspended for four games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

  Jets rookie QB suspended for steroid policy violation

new-york-jets-steroidsAnother New York Jets player is suspended for violating NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

Erik Ainge, Jets rookie quarterback, is suspended for four games for testing positive for an unnamed prohibited compound. He will serve the suspension without pay.

“We respect the league’s decision and look forward to Erik’s return,” a Jets spokesman said.

Ainge is eligible to return to the team’s roster Dec. 15. His four-game absence, however, is not expected to cause that much impact on the team’s output since he’s on injured reserve Oct.29 for a foot injury.

The 22-year-old Ainge was drafted by the Jets in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Ainge comes from a family of athletes. His father, Doug Ainge, played basketball in college. Danny Ainge, former NBA and MLB, player is his uncle. His grandfather, Don Ainge, was drafted by the MLB’s Boston Red Sox, but did not take the offer.

Ainge’s teammate Jesse Chatman was suspended a week before the start of the season. He has rejoined the team Oct. 6.

The Jets’ running back was among several players who reportedly tested positive for the banned diuretic bumetanide, considered a masking agent for anabolic steroids.

  Jets’ Jesse Chatman receives four-game suspension for failed steroid test

Jesse_Chatman_SteroidsWhat a way to kick off NFL’s season!

New York Jet’s running back Jesse Chatman was already handed out suspension for testing positive for anabolic steroids. Ouch!

And for that, Chatman will never see the red zone for four games of the season.

NFL’s official statement reads: “Jesse Chatman of the New York Jets has been suspended without pay for the team’s first four regular-season games of 2008 for violating the NFL Policy on Steroids and Related Substances.”

Without pay? That’s double ouch for Chatman.

Jet’s coach Eric Mangini’s states on a media conference: “Chatman’s suspension begins on Saturday, August 30. He is eligible to return to the Jets’ active roster on Monday, September 29 following the team’s September 28 game against the Arizona Cardinals.”

Chatman’s agent, Brett Tessler, relays this statement: “Jesse never tested positive for a steroid or any other performance-enhancing drug. Near the end of last season the League claimed he had a diuretic in his system that they said could also be used as a masking agent. After spending great time and money defending his innocence, the League made its final ruling and now Jesse has no choice but to look ahead to week 5.”

The 5-foot-8, 220-pound Chatman spent his first three NFL seasons with San Diego from 2002-04, but was released by the Chargers in July 2005. He signed with the Dolphins before that season, but was traded to New Orleans after being inactive for the first five games. Chatman was then inactive for three games with the Saints before they also released him.

After sitting out a year and losing 60 pounds, Chatman was again signed by the Dolphins and revived his NFL career.

Oh yeah, what a way to revive one’s career. A four-game suspension at the start of the regular season? Let’s get it on, Chatman!

And count on more players to join Chatman sitting out as the NFL implements new rules for the 2008 season.  Expect confusion and explicit audibles that could end up in fists flying and referee shoving in the field.
