‘Tis the season for NFL suspensions.
The league made official on Thursday what was reported more than a month ago by Jason La Canfora of NFL Network. Free agent running back LenDale White will miss the first four games of the season for violating the NFL Substance Abuse Policy.
White could wind up missing a lot more than four games. He seems to understand that he may not get another chance in the league anytime soon.
“My hope is to keep playing in the NFL, but I know now nothing is
guaranteed,” White said last month while trashing his ex-coach Pete Carroll. (That won’t help matters.)
Unless a desperate team needs a midseason pickup because of injuries, we suspect White won’t get his next chance until 2011.
