Lions LB suspended four games for performance enhancing drugs

Detroit Lions linebacker Travis Lewis has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing drugs, the NFL announced today.

Lewis, a 2012 seventh-round pick whose only contributions this year have been on special teams, tested positive after using the drug Adderall, a person who reviewed the test.

The Lions signed linebacker Julian Stanford, who played for special-teams coordinator John Bonamego last year in Jacksonville, to take Lewis’ spot on the 53-man roster.

“I apologize to my coaches, teammates, the Lions organization and our fans for my actions,” Lewis said in a statement released through the team. “I have let my team down and there’s nothing worse than that. I will not make the same mistake again. I look forward to returning to the team after I serve my suspension.”
