Steelers Tight End Weslye Saunders To Return After Week 5's Game, Not After Week 4 Bye

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

There may have been some confusion over Weslye Saunders' suspension. It's still four games. Someone should have told him earlier.

If the NFL wanted proof that Weslye Saunders is not taking his Adderall - the drug that allegedly got him suspended for not reporting his prescription of the ADHD medication to the league - all it needs to do is look at Twitter.

Saunders mentioned with a twinge of surprise that he wasn't aware the Steelers actually have to be playing a game in the week for it to count against his suspension.

The Tweet has since been removed.

So he'll still sit Week 5 against Philadelphia, Pittsburgh's fourth game of the year. That's four games in five weeks, meaning Saunders is eligible to return in preparation for Pittsburgh's Week 6 game at Tennessee.

A jailable offense? Certainly not. Neither was the medication foul-up. He'll still be an important part of this offense upon his return. Hopefully Saunders understands what his role will be better than he understand when that return actually will be.
