Colts' Mathis suspended for 4 games
Indianapolis • NFL sacks champion Robert Mathis admits he made a mistake late last season.
Now it's going to cost him four games and four paychecks.
The Colts' career sacks leader was suspended Friday by the NFL after violating the league's ban on performance-enhancing substances. What exactly Mathis tested positive for remains a mystery but the linebacker said in a statement he was seeking fertility assistance. He acknowledged that he and his wife are expecting a baby.
"I am deeply saddened that this situation will prevent me from contributing to my team for four games, and I regret that I didn't cross check what my doctor told me before I took the medication, " Mathis said.
Mathis set a single-season record with 19Â½ sacks last season.
