Jorvorskie Lane suspended two games for PED violation

The Buccaneers won’t have fullback Jorvorskie Lane for the next couple of weeks.

Tampa announced Wednesday that the NFL has suspended Lane for two weeks for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. The Bucs have a bye this week, which means that Lane will be eligible to return to action on Monday, November 3 after the Bucs play the Vikings and the Browns.

Lane has two carries for 56 yards and one catch for three yards while playing in all six Bucs games this season. There’s no other fullback on the active roster and the team opted against promoting Lonnie Pryor from the practice squad to fill Lane’s roster spot.

Instead, they have signed former Bears cornerback Isaiah Frey. Frey spent 2012 on Chicago’s practice squad, so he has a history with Bucs coach Lovie Smith, and played 19 games for the team over the last two years before getting cut last week.

    Cue the standard statement allegedly written by Lane even though it has legalese and perfect grammar saying that he unknowingly took a supplement, he thanks the team, organization, the fans, the city, the Pope, etc etc.

    He should change his name to this French name: Lemonjello

    Did he fail the new HGH test or no?

    Thank God he was PED’ing up or the Bucs might be terrible, oh wait….

    Oh and look Snuffy Smith signed another of his badly evaluated Chicago Bears players who couldn’t make Trestmen’s squad….

    We should let the Bucs and Jaguars be exempt from the PED policy, and maybe even make it mandatory.

    The seattle PEDhawks are looking to add Mr. Lane to their team.

    Seattle would love to add him to their roster.

    Well there goes the Bucs chances for the playoffs!

    Two whole weeks for cheating.

    ooh, a Seahawks reference in a comment on a PED story! Up next in today’s hot topics: acid-washed jeans, Britney Spears, and New Coke.

    Where is Richard Sherman’s lawyer when you need him?

    Even as a Pats fan I’m sick of the Seattle PED comments. I think almost all the teams have had players popped for PED usage in the last 12-24 months, so its time to stop acting like the Seahawks have that market all to themselves.

    The reality is every team has PED users on it. Every team.

    The funny thing is Seattle hasn’t had a player popped for a PED in like a year and a half. I guarantee more than half the teams in the league couldn’t boast that.

    Haters gonna hate. Go Hawks!

    A Buc with PED issues? 49ers are salivating to trade for him…

    He should have been way more involved this year. Alstott 2.
