You remember Brandon Spikes from the Chatroulette sex tape scandal (watch the video) a few months ago? After that passed, he was having a solid season for the Patriots until he he was busted for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.
If he is just getting suspended now, that means he was caught a while back.
It should be noted that he was not suspended for “performance enhancers”—Ecstasy maybe?
This does hurt the Pats defensively because he was becoming a solid player, even had an INT against Mark Sanchez last Monday night. But as we know, losing one player is not going to break the Patriots.
He is probably taking the suspension now, so he can be ready for the playoffs.
I am sure he will come up with a good excuse like his Twitter account was hacked on something— that seems to be the chic’ excuse for everything these days.
