Former Hokie suspended for steroid use

The Atlanta Falcons, Matt Lehr is being suspended for 4 games for violating the league's policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

Lehr is an integral part of a running game that averages 232.0 yards per game. The 6-2, 304-pounder is elegible to return from his suspension on Nov. 13.

"Obviously, we are disappointed, but the NFL's policies are very clear that all NFL players are responsible for what goes into their bodies -- regardless of the source," Falcons head coach Jim Mora Jr. said. "We have options to replace Matt over the next four weeks that we are very comfortable with and will implement."

This has been a great couple of weeks to be a Hokie fan. First 2 Hokies are suspended because the can't have a night out on the town without starting shit, then we lose our first game to Georgia Tech, another player is suspened for driving drunk, then we lose our second straight game to Boston College, now Matt Lehr gets suspended for juicing. Damn, this sucks.
