Virgil Green Suspension: Broncos TE Says ADHD Medicine Responsible For Punishment From NFL

On Friday afternoon, the NFL announced that three Denver Broncos players -- LB D.J. Williams, DL Ryan McBean and TE Virgil Green -- would serve suspensions for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Williams and McBean have been suspended for six games, while Green will have to sit out four games.

The league did not supply any specifics regarding the nature of the abuses in question, but later in the afternoon, Green took to Twitter to explain his particular situation.

Williams and McBean are expected to use legal action to fight their suspensions; no word yet whether or not Green plans to do the same.
