Texas wide receiver Will Fuller has been suspended six games for a PED foul, he confirmed on Monday.
Fuller explained in a post on Instagram that earlier this year he sought treatment from a medical professional who “prescribed a drug that he believed was permitted under NFL drug policy. However, Fuller later learned that the substance was not actually permitted under the performance enhancement drug policy league.
“I want to sincerely apologize to the Texas organization and all my fans for this mistake,” wrote Fuller. “I hope to forget all this and come back better than ever in 2021.”
Fuller recorded his 2020 season’s best play last Thursday, pulling six catches for 171 yards and two goals.
This season, he has recorded 879 yards receiving and a career-high eight goals.
26 year old Fuller is the subject some trade rumors this season. Especially, Packers are reportedly interested in Notre Dame products, but cannot agree on their trade value.
Texas midfielder Deshaun Watson later said he was grateful that Fuller had not been tackled.
“It would be hell if they did that, for sure,” Watson said of the possibility of trading Fuller, via ESPN.
The 26-year-old has spent the first five seasons of his career with Houston.
He is in the final year of his rookie contract.
