HOUSTON – Houston Texans receiver Will Fuller and cornerback Bradley Roby say they’ve been suspended for six games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Fuller announced via Instagram, saying that the suspension was from a medication he was prescribed that he believed to be permitted, but that was banned under the league’s policy. Fuller said he trusted a medical professional “who prescribed medication that he believed to be permitted under the NFL’s drug policy.”

“I want to sincerely apologize to the Texans organization and all of my fans for this mistake,” he wrote on Instagram. “I am looking forward to putting this all behind me and returning better than ever in 2021.”

Last week in Detroit, Fuller had six catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns.

Bradly’s announcement came several hours after Fuller’s statement. According to NFL correspondent James Palmer, Bradley released a statement, apologizing to his family, teammates and fans.

The statement reads the following:

“I apologize to my family, my teammates, the Houston Texans organization and the fans. A few months ago I unknowingly used a product that was contaminated with a banned substance by the NFL. I recognize that it is my job to know, and be responsible for, everything I put in my body. I will be suspended for 6 games ending my season. I will take the necessary steps in the future to prevent this from ever happening again. I look forward to rejoining my teammates next season in our goal to bring a championship to Houston.”
