Texans’ Fuller V, Roby hit with six-game PED bans

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

Houston Texans will be without one of their best wide receivers for the rest of the season. They’ll also be without their top corner. 

Both men cheated. Will Fuller V and Bradley Roby have been hit with six-game suspensions by the NFL for performance-enhancing drugs violations.

“Earlier this year, I sought treatment from a medical professional, who prescribed medication that he believed to be permitted under the NFL’s drug policy,” Fuller V said in an Instagram post. “As it turns out, my trust in this professional was misplaced because this medication was not a permitted substance under the NFL policy on Performance Enhancing Substances. As a result of this mistake, I have been suspended for six games for taking this prohibited medication.

“I want to sincerely apologize to the Texans organization and all of my fans for this mistake. I am looking forward to putting this all behind me and returning better than ever in 2021.”

Fuller V and Roby will also be punished into next season for their actions. The Texans have five games left on the season after playing against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. 

As a result, both men will miss all five games for the rest of this season. Then, they’ll be punished for the 2021 season-opener, as well.

Roby already has security so this will not greatly impact him. He signed a three-year, $31.5 million dollar contract with the team this past off-season. 

Fuller V; on the other hand, will be a free agent at the end of the season. He is making $10.1 million in the fifth-year of his contract.

At this time, Roby has not commented on his suspension on social media.
