Kellen Winslow Suggests Allergy Medicine Led To PED Suspension

Buccaneers_Kellen_Winslow_6Kellen Winslow is back with the Jets after a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, and he says he has an idea about what caused his positive test.

According to the Associated Press, Winslow told reporters today that he’s still not sure exactly why he was flagged for a positive test, but he thinks it was possibly for allergy medication he took. Winslow says he does not use “illegal stuff.”

The NFL has strict rules preventing league or team personnel from disclosing information about players’ drug test results, which means players can say anything about what they tested positive for and there’s no way to verify whether what they’re saying is true or not.
