Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller V announced Monday on his Instagram page that he has been suspended for six games for violating the league's performance-enhancing substances policy by taking what he said was prescribed medication he thought was permissible.
He wrote the following message:
"Earlier this year, I sought treatment from a medical professional who prescribed medication that he believed to be permitted under the NFL’s drug policy. As it turns out, my trust in this professional was misplaced because this medication was NOT a permitted substance under the NFL Policy on Performance Enhancing Substances.
"As a result of this mistake, I have been suspended for six games for taking this prohibited medication. I want to sincerely apologize to the Texans organization and all of my fans for this mistake. I am looking forward to putting this all behind me and returning better than ever in 2021.
"Thank you, Will."
Since Houston has only five games remaining...
