Tyler Sash Suspension: NFL Bans Safety For Four Games

The New York Giants secondary has taken another hit with reports on Tuesday that safety Tyler Sash has been suspended by the league for violating the league performance-enhancing drug policy. From ESPN:

This is really disappointing. On the heels of the injury to cornerback Terrell Thomas there was a possibility that Sash, the second-year player from Iowa, was about to see his role on defense expand.

Here is Sash's statement on the suspension, courtesy of Ralph Vacchiano:

"I took a prescription drug (Adderall) legally under a doctor's care for an anxiety condition during the off season in March of this year. The purpose was to help me with public speaking appearances. I had no idea that this prescription drug was banned by NFL policy. Although I take full responsibility for this situation, I also want to state that I have never cheated or taken performance-enhancing drugs, and I frown on those who do."

Now, the third safety spot is left to a group of players that include free-agent signees Stevie Brown and Chris Horton, and undrafted free agents like Will Hill and JoJo Nicolas. How long before Deon Grant's phone rings, if it hasn't already?
