He supposedly tested positive for Adderall, which is for ADD and/or narcolepsy. It's unfortunate that Adderall is among the league's banned substances, but it is.

The exact same thing just happened to Tyler Sash of the Giants. He appealed the suspension, lost, and will serve a 4-game suspension. I can only guess that the same thing will happen to Haden.

This isn't good.

I agree, Adderall shouldn't be on the list at all, but they get the memo of what they can and can't take and he took it. It just stinks because he's a key piece to this defense

Awesome. Just awesome. Our 2 best run defenders are out and now our best cover man is down.

It's going to be another typical long Cleveland season. So who does Joe Banner draft with his top 4 pick this year?

Why not? It's basically prescription cocaine if you don't have ADD/ADHD.

Doesn't it have to be a second violation to have a 4 game suspension?

Right. They use it to stay up because it's a stimulant lol.

I actually have ADHD and take Adderall and hearing how people who don't have ADHD talk about what it does to them is enough to tell me it's not something to be taking without a prescription.

Yeah, it can be abused, just like any amphetamine, which is why it's banned.

The craziest part about the case of Tyler Sash is that his doctor prescribed Adderall for him. He was simply taking the medication that his doctor prescribed for him, and it got him a 4-game suspension.

So even if Haden's doctor gave him a prescription for it, he'll still have to serve the suspension. It sucks, but you gotta play by the rules.

Yeah, I don't see what excuse a starting NFL CB has for taking adderall. The dude isn't studying for finals anymore, he's got no need to be zoned in all night.

This isn't good.

the reason its banned is because if you take enough of them you turn into a [inappropriate/removed] zombie machine. This makes me question his work ethic. Adderal is considered meth if taken out of the pill..
