Report: Bucs Wright to be suspended for Adderall use

TAMPA – Aqib Talib may not be the only Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback suspended for using Adderall this season.
Eric Wright will soon be suspended by the league for the same violation of the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs, according to a report Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
Bucs officials were not immediately confirming the report, in part because the NFL has not announced a suspension and possibly because an appeal has been filed and is being reviewed.
Adderall is most often used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
Talib has served three games of a four-game suspension for using the drug, which means the loss of Wright could prove devastating to the Bucs when they take on the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Talib will not be eligible to return to the Bucs active roster until Nov. 5 and cannot play in a game until the Bucs take on the San Diego Chargers at RJS on Sunday, Nov. 11.
Wright was one of the key free agents the Bucs brought in this year, signing a five-year, $38 million contract just a day into the start of the free-agency signing period.
Wright, who took over the job of covering the opponent’s top receiver when Talib went down, ranks fifth on the team in tackles with 31 and has one interception so far this year.
