Titans fullback suspended for performance enhancing drugs

Saturday, September 3, 2011 at 5:41pm

Running back Chris Johnson won’t miss the Tennessee Titans’ opener but fullback Ahmard Hall will – and then some.

The NFL suspended Hall for four games on Saturday for violation of the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. The suspension went into effect immediately and meant the veteran would be barred from all tem activities until after the Titans Oct. 2 contest at Cleveland.

He said the incident was not related to steroids.

“This happened back in February after the season, I basically took a stimulant to stay up while driving from Nashville to Texas, and was tested the next day at my home,” Hall told the Associated Press. “We appealed the decision back in March, but it was denied and I was informed [Saturday].”

In response to the suspension, Tennessee traded for fullback Quinn Johnson, who started four games last season for Green Bay. Johnson (6-foot-1, 263 pounds) was a fifth-round pick in 2009 by the Packers out of LSU. He has appeared in 20 career NFL contests.

The Titans gave Green By an undisclosed draft choice in return.
