Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller and veteran defensive back Bradley Roby have both been handed six-game suspensions by the league for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to ESPN’s Sarah Barshop.

Fuller, 26, took to his official Instagram page to address the suspension, claiming the violation was a result of his taking prescribed medication not permitted under the policy.

“Earlier this year, I sought treatment from a medical professional who prescribed medication that he believed to be permitted under the NFL’s drug policy” Fuller stated. “As it turns out, my trust in this professional was misplaced because this medication was NOT a permitted substance under the NFL Policy on Performance Enhancing Substances.

As a result of this mistake, I have been suspended for six games for taking this prohibited medication. I want to sincerely apologize to the Texans organization and all of my fans for this mistake. I am looking forward to putting this all behind me and returning better than ever in 2021.”

Fuller is coming off a monster game against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, and is having arguably the best season of his NFL career.

Fuller has 53 receptions for 879 yards and eight touchdowns this season for the Texans.

Roby, 28, has 37 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery over 10 games this season for Houston.
