Redskins cornerback Phillip Buchanon is back with the team following his four-game suspension, and he’s declining to say what substance he took to earn that suspension — other than that he didn’t mean to take it.
Buchanon said it was “an honest mistake,” according to CSNwashington.com.
The NFL has strict privacy rules regarding drug testing, and so there’s no way to tell which players were busted for taking steroids and which ones merely took an over-the-counter supplement that had a substance on the banned list. Buchanon didn’t want to volunteer anything.
“Things happen,” he said. “I look forward to trying to make plays.”
The Redskins have their bye this week, and Buchanon is expected to start making plays in Week Six against the Eagles.
