Eric Wright the cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be facing a possible suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs.
Wright has a injured Achilles tendon that he hurt on Thursday night’s game against the Vikings. The Bucs coach said that, “he thinks he is going to be OK” for Sunday’s game. But he declined to have anything to say when he was asked if the league will have any say in Wright’s availability. It is possible that Wright will be punished with a four-game suspension for using the banned substance Adderall. Wright could be available to play on Sunday.
The Bucs are already playing without starting left cornerback Aqib Talib. Talib has one more game left on his four game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs. At the time of the suspension, Talib acknowledged taking an Adderall pill after obtaining it without a prescription.
Adderall is normally used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Adderall is also banned drug according to the NFL's policy on PED's. Some players are allowed to take the pill if they have a prescription and a waiver from the league.
