New York Giants Tyler Sash Suspended By NFL

The NFL has suspended New York Giants reserve safety Tyler Sash four games for a violation of the league's performance enhancing drugs policy.

The news comes just one day after the Giants found out that cornerback Terrell Thomas, trying to come back after missing last season with a torn ACL, needs surgery on the same knee for another possible torn ACL.

Sash released a statement in which he said he used Adderall under a doctor's care. It read:

"I took a prescription drug (Adderall) legally under a doctor's care for an anxiety condition during the off season in March of this year. The purpose was to help me with public speaking appearances. I had no idea that this prescription drug was banned by NFL policy. Although I take full responsibility for this situation, I also want to state that I have never cheated or taken performance-enhancing drugs, and I frown on those who do."
