Raiders CB Nevin Lawson suspended four games due to PEDs
The Oakland Raiders will be without cornerback Nevin Lawson for the first four games of the upcoming season.
Lawson announced on Twitter Monday that he has been suspended for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. Lawson says he tested positive for ostarine, an illegal substance that can mimic testosterone. Lawson said in his statement he unknowingly ingested the substance.
