I've apologized to my coaches and teammates for an unfortunate mistake," Blackstock said. "I did not intentionally violate the policy, but I know it's my responsibility to use only approved nutritional supplements, and I didn't realize I was taking an over-the-counter product that included a banned substance. I also want to apologize to our fans, and I'll do everything I can to be ready to come back strong next month."
Now things can get back to normal. I mean, the team is 0-5 and fan approval is at its lowest point during the Marvin Lewis Administration. So why not have a guy suspended by the league? I mean, we haven't seen that since ... well ... last week when Chris Henry came off his own four-week time out.
