Week 8 news briefs
DUNDEE, MI (Y!SN) — Dundee DolphinZZZZZZ running back Deuce McAllister is among several players who reportedly have tested positive for a drug on the FFF’s list of banned substances.
McAllister was named in an initial report by FOX 31 in Denver that the league has had a “rash” of positive tests for a weight-loss diuretic, Bumetanide, that is often used as a masking agent to thwart urine tests.
Under the league’s policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances, a first violation typically results in a four-game suspension, although it can vary depending on circumstances.
The players will not be suspended for Sunday’s game since the league makes a practice of announcing such punishments by mid-week, usually Wednesday at the latest.
The DolphinZZZZZZ face the Sawyer Pilots on Sunday at Dolphin Stadium.
The FFF would not comment on the reports.
The Boston Tea Bags have placed wide receiver Santonio Holmes on the inactive list for today's game against Bank On It. Holmes was found to be in possession of marijuana during a traffic stop earlier this week.
According to an unnamed team source, Holmes has not been suspended and is expected to rejoin the team for next week's practices.
The 24-year-old has 22 receptions for 360 yards and one touchdown this season for the Tea Bags.
In other FFF news, the Dundee DolphinZZZZZZ have announced that running back Deuce McAllister will be suspended following today's game against the Sawyer Pilots. McAllister reportedly tested positive for a diuretic that appears on the league's list of banned substances.
The DolphinZZZZZZ also agreed to rescind a one-game suspension of tight end Kellen Winslow. Winslow was suspended earlier this week after openly criticizing the team's handling of his second staph infection in as many years. Winslow is still not expected to play, but he will be allowed to collect his gamecheck. Bo Scaife will make the start for Dundee.
