Week 2 Preview

Jacob Solis and Jack Ryan

Week 1 is over, and the NFL season is now underway. A lot has happened this week, including an overhaul of the NFL’s drug policy. The new policy now includes testing players for human growth hormone (HGH), a higher threshold for a positive marijuana test, and a two game suspension for players convicted of or entering a plea deal for driving under the influence. This new policy means that players suspended for the summer for positive drug tests could have their suspensions shortened or erased completely. The Bronco’s Wes Welker (WR) could have his suspension revoked, and Josh Gordon (WR) of the Browns could have his yearlong suspension reduced to 10 games. Although it is unlikely these players will be cleared to play by Sunday, they might have their suspensions adjusted in the near future. In other notes, the Ravens have released Ray Rice (RB), upon the release of a video involving him hitting his then fiancee. He has been indefinitely suspended from the NFL. Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson (RB) will miss this Sunday’s game after being indicted for reckless and negligent injury to a child.
