Zbikowski submits second drug test, NFL will review

Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski could end up in hot water over a failed drug test following his Saturday boxing match. But he’s hoping his appeal clears everything up.

Zbikowski’s attorney says the result was a false positive, and that he’s sending a negative result from “a more in-depth test” to the Chickasaw Nation Boxing Commission, his attorney told the Baltimore Sun.

Meanwhile, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league office will review the matter whenever players are back at work.

“We do not know the facts, but it will be reviewed when the teams return,” Aiello said.

A Ravens spokesman said, “At this time, unfortunately, we can’t reach out to Tom for his side of the story.”

Zbikowski’s victory on Saturday night improved his record to 4-0. He has said he plans to continue fighting until the season starts, but if he doesn’t win his appeal, his 45-day suspension could cause his next two scheduled fights to be scrapped.

    Tom in a classic grunge stoner pose from a few months back. All the warning signs were there.

    None of the NFL’s business. The CBA is not in force. If it was, why would the NFL still be locking out players?

    Chickasaw Nation Boxing Commission! Drunken idiots that tested with a paper strip like a pregnancy test. Most all the fighters came up dirty!
    CANNOT test for THC with a paper-dip test. Not legal and in fact, not accurate at all.
    The NFL is not stupid enough to consider results from such a hillbilly screening.
    Okie Indians on alcohol.

    Check his abnormally small testicles. Thats usually a sign.

    FYI – every boxer who fought that night tested “positive”. They used a test strip with a cup of urine as the test. Every boxer – really? That test was garbage and Zibby submitted blood testing the next day.

    Has Tom been training with Lance Armstrong during the off season?

    Dude, I wanna toke up with Tom. =)

    The NFL was stunned to find how much more effective a urine sample was than wiping a bit of sweat from the player’s brow.

    And then I suppose you’d be the one that debriefs him. (pun intended)

    Funny that this site hasn’t bothered to report that Zibby’s 2nd test was negative. He has been cleared. But that news doesn’t create hits for this site, so no mention of it.

    If Ocho came up ‘green’ on a test while he was with the MSL Kansas City franchise all you apologists wouldnt care a damn about his 2nd clean sample…..

    dear eslaught: I think a shriveled prune for a brain makes one think marijuana causes shrinked testicles.

    Who cares!! If he can toke one up and still kick someone’s arse, more power to him!!
