Report: Bears’ TE Gabe Miller suspended four games for PEDs

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Chicago Bears’ backup tight end Gabe Miller has been suspend for four games due to violating the leagues’ policy on performance enhancing drugs.

Miller is already trying to save any chance of making the Bears’ roster by releasing a statement through the team.

I would like to apologize to the entire Bears organization as well as our fans for taking a substance during the offseason that is prohibited by the NFL without a medical exemption,” Gabe Miller said.  “While it was an isolated incident, I regret the poor judgment I showed and accept full responsibility for this mistake along with the punishment that comes with it.  In the meantime I will continue to work hard and contribute in any way I can.  I look forward to having the opportunity to make this up to the people that I have disappointed.

As ProFootballtalk points out, due to the fact that the league can’t specify as to why a player was suspended, this leaves the door open for said player to say anything they want as to avoid getting the label and stigma of a juicer. Before the suspension Miller was already facing an uphill battle to make the roster. With this Miller is now tumbling off the hill.
