Another defender has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. And once again, the case is going to shine a light on the legal intricacies of the league’s policy.
NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that linebacker David Vobora will be suspended for the next four games, but Vobora plans to sue the company that manufactures the supplement he tested
Vobora’s agent says a toxicology report showed the product
was tainted with a substance that violated the league’s policy. Vobora even called the league’s hotline and was told the product wasn’t on the banned list.
Despite the lawsuit against the company, Vobora’s agent seems to be accepting the league’s decision.
He confirms Vobora was told the substance, “Was not on the list of officially sanctioned products, and
ultimately a player is responsible for anything he puts in his body.”
