Seahawks' Irvin suspended four games

The SportsXchange

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Bruce Irvin was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season by the NFL for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

He issued a statement that was released by the Seahawks:

"I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches and Seahawks fans for making a mistake when I took a substance that is prohibited in the NFL without a medical exemption. I am extremely disappointed in the poor judgment I showed and take full responsibility for my actions. I will not appeal the discipline and instead will focus my energy on preparing for the season so I can begin earning your trust and respect again. I look forward to contributing to the team the moment I return."

Last season, as a rookie, Irvin did not start any games but played in all 16 and recorded eight sacks.
