Breaking News... And Not The Good Kind

 

As BigW noted in the sidebar, Titans Defensive Tackle Kevin Vickerson has been busted by the league's drug policy.  Here's more from the Tennessean's Jim Wyatt:

Titans defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson is facing a four-game suspension from the NFL for violation of the league's anti-doping policy, according to league sources familiar with the situation.

Vickerson, a reserve who’s played in seven games, is expected to begin serving his suspension beginning with Sunday’s game against the Browns.

Vickerson tested positive for the banned diuretic, bumetanide. He initially planned to appeal but decided Friday to serve the suspension.

Vickerson is the 2nd Titans player that comes to mind - the other being RB Chris Henry - to get popped for a 4 game suspension in the last 2 years.  At least as a diuretic it was more harmful to himself that a cheating performance enhancer like a steroid.  Still, it's sad to see him make this kind of mistake while he's having a career year.

We'll update you if more details come out.
