Former Wisconsin Badger and current Seattle Seahawk rookie guard John
Moffitt was suspended for four games without pay on Tuesday for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
The league announced the suspension will begin immediately even though Moffitt is on injured reserve and out for the season with a right knee injury.
Moffitt’s agent, Michael George, said that Moffitt’s suspension was due to his use of a prescription drug used to treat hyperactivity. George said that Adderall, the drug that Moffitt used, is banned under the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, unless a player has pre-approval from the league. Moffitt didn’t get that pre-approval, resulting in the suspension.
Moffitt was a third-round pick of the Seahawks in the most recent NFL Draft. He started the first 9-games of the season for Seattle before suffering the season ending injury.
