Seattle Seahawks rookie safety Winston Guy, who has played in only two games, has been suspended for the next four without pay for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The league announced the suspension Tuesday. He will begin the suspension immediately and will be eligible to rejoin Seattle’s active roster Dec. 17.
“It is what it is. He is responsible for what he put in his body,” agent Greg Lamont Linton told Curtis Crabtree of KJR radio and ProFootballTalk.com. The NFL does not fully disclose the nature of violations.
Linton claimed the positive test was the result of an ingredient found in an over-the-counter supplement his client took. He says Guy has no intention of appealing his suspension, calling it an innocent mistake.
Guy, a sixth-round pick out of Kentucky, has been active for only two of 10 games this season.
