Wide Receiver Adrian Madise was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season, for violating the league's banned-substance policy.
The suspension, which was announced today, is scheduled to begin this Sunday when the Broncos open their 2004 season against the Kansas City Chiefs at Invesco Field. Because of the suspension, the team will be allowed one additional player to it's 53-man roster. Once the suspension is over, either the added play or Madise will be dropped from the roster.
Madise has not yet spoken with reporters regarding the suspension, but did issue a press release through the team's official webite.
STATEMENT FROM DENVER BRONCOS WR ADRIAN MADISE
"Without my knowledge, I was taking a supplement that contained a substance banned by the National Football League. I realize that it is my responsibility to monitor what goes into my body, and therefore I have chosen to forego the appeal process which is due me. I am sorry about how this affects the team, and will serve my discipline as per NFL policy. I look forward to getting back on the field with the team after this suspension, and after recovering from my broken hand suffered in the final preseason game."
