The Cleveland Browns released wide receiver Antonio Callaway on Thursday. He was released just days after he was benched on Nov. 10.

The news came before the Browns played the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio.

Cleveland.com is reporting that Callaway has been suspended 10-games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He has filed an appeal, which could be heard on Friday.

The publication is reporting that Callaway flunked two drug tests back in August. He allegedly ‘ingested a CBD edible that was tainted with THC.’

The story also says that Callaway had 15 nanograms on the first test and 40 nanograms in the second test. The story also says that he has passed every test since August.

Marijuana is banned by the NFL. He previously was suspended four-games to begin the 2019 season.

“I stand by (Antonio Callaway) and know first hand all the improvements he’s made in his life,” Kawa tweeted. “The fact that a tainted cbd supplement is responsible for a 10game suspension is unfortunate and hopefully the @NFLPA will be able to fix this in the new cba.”

Callaway appeared in four games, including two starts, during the 2019 season. He had eight receptions for 89 yards.

He last played for the Browns on Nov. 3 against the Denver Broncos. He had a season-high four receptions for 56 yards.
