The Canadian Football League has announced that Saskatchewan Roughriders running back Marcus Thigpen has been suspended two games for violating the CFL/CFLPA Drug Policy.
The positive sample was collected during a random in-competition test last November.
Statement from Riders General Manager and Head Coach Chris Jones:
We are disappointed in Marcus and that he has tested positive for a banned substance. We have been in conversation with Marcus and the CFL for clarity and accept the leagues decision and corresponding two-game suspension. Our organization fully supports the CFL/CFLPA policy preventing the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
