Ricky Williams Reportedly Fails Drug Test

from yahoo sports

Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams apparently is in trouble with the NFL again.

The Miami Herald reported on its web site Sunday night that Williams faces at least a one-year suspension from the NFL after testing positive for drug use a fourth time under the league's substance abuse policy.

According to the report, two sources confirmed a report by WSVN-TV that Williams had failed the test, although neither would say the substance he used. Williams had tested positive in the past for marijuana use.

Williams missed the first four games of the 2005 season and was fined for the second and third violations of the substance abuse program. Those positive tests reportedly occurred in December 2003 and in the 2004 offseason.

While I am surprised at this I am certainly not shocked! I said at the beginning of the season that the Dolphins should have traded Ricky to get whatever they could out of him. Now, not only does it seem that his playing days in Miami are done his career should be up in smoke as well.
