Herman released the following statement per the NFLPA.
“The NFL requires a therapeutic use exemption for permission to take certain medications. I have a TUE for one medication, but not another stimulant that treats the same condition. Unfortunately, a stimulant for which I don’t have a TUE was in my body, and the rules are very strict so I am taking responsibility for my mistake. I sincerely apologize to my teammates and coaches. I will not make the same mistake in the future, and I will spend the four weeks working hard to be ready to return to work.”
