Giants Running Back Gets Suspension Lifted
According to the Newark Star-Ledger’s Mike Garafolo, Giants running back Andre Brown has gotten his 4 game suspension lifted by the NFL.
Brown was given a 4 game suspension over the offseason, shortly after becoming a fan favorite for his “I’ve Got A Ring” viral anthem. According to reports Brown tested positive for Adderall, which the NFL considers to be a banned substance, however the league overruled the suspension since Andre Brown has apparently been diagnosed with ADHD. Brown released a quote via twitter saying “Suspension lifted !!!!!!!! Thank God.” Brown is expected to compete with D.J. Ware and 1st round pick David Wilson for the 2nd running back position behind Amhad Bradshaw.
