Will Grier Florida Gators QB Suspended: Tested Positive for Performance Enhancing Susbstance –
Huge news out of the Florida Gators camp…Will Grier is suspended for a year for testing positive for performance-enhancing substances found in an over-the-counter supplement he purchased.
(ESPN) – Grier tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance that was found in an over-the-counter supplement, McElwain said. The positive test carries an automatic suspension of one calendar year from the NCAA, meaning Grier would not be eligible to return until Florida’s seventh game of the 2016 season. He would have redshirt sophomore status at that time, a Florida spokesperson said.
McElwain said the school will appeal the suspension.
“I took an over-the-counter supplement that had something in it,” a tearful Grier said during a Monday news conference. “I did not check with the medical staff before taking it. I hope that people can learn from this, learn from my mistake. I’m really sorry to everyone, just really sorry.” Read more on the story…
