Jacksonville Jaguars rookie linebacker LaRoy Reynolds has been suspended for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drugs (PED) policy, according to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.
Reynolds, who made the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie free agent will now miss the next four games, but because he violated the PED policy he will not be able to remain with the team at the facility during his suspension. If you recall, Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon was able to work with the team during his initial four-game suspension.
We do not know what the "PED" Reynolds tested positive for, but it's worth noting that things like Adderall and Sudafed are on the NFL's PED banned substance list. Either way, it isn't a mistake you should be making.
Reynolds can return to the team on December 6, after the team's Thursday Night Football game against the Houston Texans.
Update: LaRoy Reynolds tweeted out a statement on the suspension.
Sincerest apologies to all fans, supporters and Jaguar family. Mistakes are made but I will come back prepared to help my team. #standunited— LaRoy Reynolds (@CodeBlack56) November 12, 2013
I know in my heart it was an honest mistake. I will continue to trust God and come back better then ever. Can't wait to rejoin my team!— LaRoy Reynolds (@CodeBlack56) November 12, 2013
