Duane Brown’s suspension has been overturned

Duane Brown the Houston Texans starting offensive lineman will not be suspended the first ten games. According to Dan Graziano and Tania Ganguli, Brown consumed beef in Mexico which caused him to fail a drug test for clenbuterol.

The NFL Players Association proved to the NFL the burgers and steaks Brown ate in Mexico caused the positive test. Consequently, on Tuesday, the drug program’s independent administrator sent a letter warning players that consumption of too much meat in Mexico and China could cause a positive test for the anabolic substance clenbuterol.

Clenbuterol has been used to control asthma and as an unregulated weight-loss supplement. It is not used in any medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is banned by the NFL.

This is great news for the NFL and the Texans.
