Titans LT Lewan loses appeal, will serve four-game ban

Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan lost his appeal and received a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, the league announced Friday.

Lewan acknowledged last month over social media that he tested positive for the banned substance ostarine. The 28-year-old posted apparent polygraph results on Instagram to detail that he didn't knowingly use the substance.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Lewan is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games. He will be allowed to return to the Titans' roster on Monday, Sept. 30, following the team's Week 4 contest at Atlanta.

Lewan signed a five-year, $80 million contract last season to become the highest-paid tackle in the league.

He has played in 73 games (68 starts) since being selected by Tennessee with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
