Eagles LB Knott suspended for PED use

Eagles special teamer and LB Jake Knott has been suspended for the first for games of the upcoming season with pay the team has announced as a result of a positive test for performance enhancing drugs.

The teams released the following statement on Knott’s behalf.

“Several weeks ago, I was shocked to learn that I tested positive for a stimulant that is banned by the NFL. I have never knowingly ingested a banned substance, but like most players, I take nutritional supplements. Unfortunately, I now know that supplements are not regulated and thus may contain things that are not listed on the label. The NFL policy is very strict, so I have chosen to take immediate responsibility.

“I look forward to participating in team workouts, training camp and the pre-season with my team. During the suspension, I will work extremely hard to stay in top football shape and be ready to contribute immediately upon my return. I sincerely apologize to my teammates, coaches, my family and fans for the impact of my mistake on the team.”-ProFootballTalk.com
