In December, Minnesota Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson was suspended for four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. After sitting out the final three weeks of the regular season and the Vikings’ playoff game, he’s now back with the team.
Henderson, who got on the field for only two games during the regular season, probably won’t play in the NFC Championship Game. But he said he’s glad to be back.
“I did my part and stayed in shape; now I just have to go out there in practice and show the coaches what I can do,” Henderson told the Pioneer Press.
It is not known what substance Henderson tested positive for. He said the positive test was a result of taking a prescription drug, but he declined to give more detail.
“I don’t want to get into that,” Henderson said. “With the situation being what it is I think it’s better if I just leave it alone, let it die, let it be what it was.”
