With Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib serving a four-game suspension for taking Adderall, the other starting corner in Tampa could be sitting down for a quarter of the season, too.
Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Eric Wright is facing a ban for Adderall, an ADD medication that more and more players are using as a stimulant. It’s a banned substance, and players may permissibly take it only with both a prescription and a waiver from the league’s policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances.
The status of Wright’s appeal, if any, isn’t known. The suspension will become official once the internal process has been finalized.
Wright escaped league scrutiny during the offseason when a DUI arrest resulted in no charges being pursued.
