Former Oklahoma Star Reportedly Suspended 10 Games By NFL

Lane Johnson, an offensive lineman for the Philadelphia Eagles, has reportedly been suspended 10 games by the NFL. The 26-year-old offensive tackle reportedly failed a PED test.

The former Oklahoma Sooners' standout was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. He signed a six-year contract worth $63 million, $35.5 million guaranteed.

Johnson is appealing the suspension and says he tested positive for an approved substance.

From Jay Glazer:

Just heard from Lane Johnson, says he took an amino acid that was approved but tested positive for peptide. Fighting it as well as company. You're responsible for what goes in your body but he insists it was approved. Waiting on B sample
