DENVER (AP) -- Denver Broncos safety Lee Flowers was suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's banned substances policy.
Flowers said he tested positive for ephedra, an over-the-counter stimulant that speeds the heart rate and constricts blood vessels, but wasn't aware the supplement was in his system. He said his positive test stemmed from a vitamin he took in December.
``Unfortunately, that vitamin had ephedra in it,'' Flowers said Saturday. ``I'm a little disappointed in myself because I did everything that's possible to take precautions and try not to put quote, illegal, substances in my body, but it is what it is.''
Glad he isnt a steeler anymore.
