“The substance was a medication that I should have gotten clarification on before taking,” Spikes said in a statement. “It was not a performance enhancer or an illegal drug.

Linebacker Brandon Spikes has been suspended by the NFL for 4 games after he violated the league’s substance abuse policy.

The rookie linebacker will be missed by the New England Patriots who have emerged as the Superbowl favorites.

The only other violations are abuses of prescription drugs or alcohol. Yea…I doubt it

C’mon Son!!

You sound like David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez using the “I don’t know what I took” excuse.

When are professional athletes going to man up and admit it when they are caught using steroids??

Brandon Spikes will miss the last 4 games of the 2010 NFL regular season.
