NFL Suspends Bengals Defensive End Antwan Odom Four Games

In early September, reports surfaced that Antwan Odom tested positive for a prescription drug that was banned by the league, violating the league's substance policy. In response Odom pleaded to fans and teammates to have faith and patience in him. The issue sat in appeals for some time after being tested positive.

UPDATE: Joe Reedy tweets:

Odom's attorney, David Cornwell, said the positive test was he took one of his wife's prescription weight loss pills by mistake.

However, on Friday the NFL announced that Odom is suspended four games without pay for "violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances". The suspension takes effect right now, which means Odom will miss games against Atlanta, Miami, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.

Odom has largely gone unnoticed this year, not recording a quarterback sack and only recording four total tackles.
