Giants lineman Eric Herman suspended four games

New York Giants offensive lienman Eric Herman was suspended four games for violating the NFL performance-enhancing drug policy.

Herman was drafted in the seventh round last year and spent time on the Giants’ practice squad.

“The NFL requires a therapeutic use exemption for permission to take certain medications,” Herman said in a statement. “I have a TUE for one medication, but not another stimulant that treats the same condition. Unfortunately, a stimulant for which I don’t have a TUE was in my body, and the rules are very strict, so I am taking responsibility and I sincerely apologize to my teammates, coaches and the club. This won’t happen again, and I will spend the four weeks working hard to be ready to return to work.”
