Lions Say Drug Policy That Led to Rogers' Suspension Is Confusing

iWon - Sports News:
"The Detroit Lions understand they will be missing star defensive tackle Shaun Rogers for the next month.

They just aren't clear why.

The NFL suspended Rogers without pay for the next four games for violating a league rule on banned substances. The league said Wednesday the violation involved an NFL policy that covers anabolic steroids and related substances.

Rogers will be eligible to return for the Thanksgiving Day game against Miami.

Several Lions players said the two-time Pro Bowler fell afoul of a confusing policy that leaves them not knowing which supplements are OK and which are banned. Unlike the league's policy on street drugs, a first offense related to performance-enhancing substances brings a suspension."
