New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison will be suspended by the NFL for four games because he admitted to federal investigators that he obtained Human Growth Hormone, sources have told ESPN.

Holy crap.

I read on PFT that there was due to be a 'wave of suspensions' soon but didn't figure Rodney to be one of the offenders.

I guess this was his way of trying to recover from that catastrophic injury - how he thought he would get away with it is another thing.

Disappointing.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned some Steelers may be implicated at some point, especially since they recently canned a team doctor for buying 150 grand worth of the stuff with his credit card.

Me too - it sounds like the testing for HGH is pretty haphazard and where you get implicated is if you are dumb enough to have your name show up in seized records or a subject of an investigation does like P-Funk or Q and rolls over on you.

Mortenson said Harrison did not test positive so apparently his name turned up in the investigation and he fessed up to Goodell - in the attached audio link Mortenson and Lennie P. laugh about teh word being out that the Commissioner does not like to be lied to)

Not a good sign for whichever team has the assistant who has been questioned.

Nope, I'm thinking Reed. His kickoffs have been traveling a LOT further than normal for him during the preseason, at least. I doubt hitting the gym accounts for all of that extra distance.
