For the second time this season, news of a Redskins player being suspended for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy dropped just after the conclusion of Mike Shanahan's Monday press conference. Church Lady, your thoughts?
Anyway, the league's announcement of Jordan Black's enforced time away means that any appeal has already been heard and disposed of, but that doesn't mean Black's fellow offensive linemen aren't convinced of his innocence.
Take Chris Chester, for example.
Jordan Black's suspension is a faux attempt by the nfl to appear to care about players safety(cont). He's getting screwed over paperwork.
And rookie Josh LeRibeus was also quick to weigh in Monday night.
Don't trust everything you hear about Jordan Black. I know for a fact he isn't the doper he's accused of being.
So was Trent Williams, in a message spread over two tweets:
I really hate to c Jordan labeled as doper/cheater when that's def not the case. After the last decade he spent contributing to this league ... And to see Jordan get screwed over is really disheartening SMDH total disgrace
Kory Lichtensteiger gave his thoughts in a tweet relayed by his wife, Mandi.
Jordan black is no doper both the nfl and redskins were aware of the prescribed meds he is taking.The idea of him using PEDs is ridiculous.
And Tom Compton also weighed in:
Jordan Black is no doper. Very unfortunate to see him labeled as one.
Given the vagaries of the NFL's policy, there's every chance these guys are right, especially if this tweet from 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen is correct. We'll see if Black is willing to put himself forward and tell his story.
