    Per Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Rodney will be suspended for 4 games for being tied to purchasing HGH. I'm not sure of any other details.

    Chris Mortenson is reporting on ESPN...that Rodney Harrison is being suspended for the first four games, due to obtaining and using the drug HGH.

    If this is true, I guess that's why we haven't seen him out there. I am depressed too. :( :(

    Thank you for saying it.

    There will be no double standard just b/c he's one of ours.

    That explains his recent absence. Egads.

    Re: Rodney Harrison to be suspended for 4 games for HGH

    Bring back the Hawk, if he's healthy. Boy I know Bob Kraft is not happy about this. It wouldn't surprise me if the Pats discipline him too. Very disappointing. It's a damn good thing they put Merriweather at Safety. Hopefully, that ding he took in the game is not to serious.

    Dammit Rodney, how could you?

    I guess Sanders will be starting and I'm betting they wished they had Hawkins back. Merriweather could get an early intro to the NFL.

    I bet a ton of players use HGH to recover from injuries.

    The only thing I can think is that he wanted to come back from his injury and resorted to this. I am not justifying it, and don't dismiss it, because it is cheating. However, that was my first thought.

    Because of this he won't count towards the roster for 4 weeks and the Pats have to make one fewer cut.

    I bet they do. Who cares? It's against the rules and he got caught.

    I don't know, I have to defend Rodney on this one. Oh, who am I kidding - if this is true, it is indefensible.

    Well, it isn't like the Pats have ran away from this stuff. They signed Sauerbrun even after that whole "TopCat" scandal.

    They signed Morris despite a 4-game suspension a few years ago for substance abuse.

    And then there was Cloud's 4-game suspension in 2003...
