Our new friends at the Cincinnati-centric blog known as Three-Way Chili report that Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom is facing a four-game suspension under the league’s steroids policy.
And we have confirmed that Odom is facing a four-game suspension. We’re told that an appeal is pending, and that Odom believes he has strong arguments in favor of a reduction or a reversal of the appeal.
Then again, so did Brian Cushing.
Stay tuned. We vaguely recall from the StarCaps saga that suspensions not imposed by Tuesday won’t be imposed at all for the week in question, so Odom most likely will be playing on Sunday in New England.
In 2009, Odom was on his way to having a monster season before tearing an Achilles’ tendon.
