Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams tested positive for marijuana in April and will not be allowed to apply for reinstatement to the NFL until September, sources said.



Williams
Williams was suspended last year for violation of the substance abuse policy and was eligible to be reinstated this month, but the league's medical advisors that oversee Williams' personal rehabilitation program recently notified commissioner Roger Goodell of the positive test, sources said.

The doctors also recommended that Williams not be allowed to apply for reinstatement until September, sources said. The commissioner usually adheres to the advice of the medical advisors under the substance abuse policy.

"Falling off the wagon is part of rehab," a source said. "Based on the medical evidence in Ricky's case, the doctors say it's too early to come back. He had the positive test last month. Remember, he's been diagnosed with social anxiety disorder -- that's a real disease and a good percentage of those folks self-medicate with substances like marijuana, often at the moment they are about to have a high level of social interaction."

League spokesman Greg Aiello said the NFL would have no comment, as did Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene.

David Cornwell, an attorney who has represented Williams during his substance abuse cases, said he would honor the confidentiality policies in effect with another no comment.

If he would just self-medicate with alcohol, everything would be alright.

And hire a driver, of course.

So sad. He had such a promising career, and he is just waisting it so he can smoke a bongload.

Make money first, then smoke bong load. Not that hard of a concept to figure out.

New England will probably sign him to back up Maroney. [sarcasm] Seriously, what is this guy's major malfunction? Didn't he run out of money the first time? If I remember right, he had to go live in a tent somewhere b/c he couldn't afford his home anymore. What does this guy think he will do to generate $$$ for the rest of his life? I don't get it.

Please, somebody tell me we've reached the LIFETIME BAN level with this dopey piece of shit. I'm really tired of hearing about him at this point.

I remember it being discussed that he has some sort of "social anxiety disorder"

Maybe the weed is his way of coping with it??

Either way, i dont feel too sorry for him. He still made millions and enough to live off comfortably if hes smart for the rest of his life.

The CFL will take 'em back. They encourage pot smoking! ;)
He was making $240,000 a year with the Argonauts.

I think either one of two things will happen with Ricky.

The first and most probable future is Goodell will never let him back in the league. The only defense Ricky has at this point is his anxiety disorder and I think that excuse has been exhausted.

The second path is that Goodell opens the door for reinstatement, but no team will sign him with a lifetime ban threat in the background. With all of the talk on ESPN about teams being very cautious with policy violators, I can't see Ricky ever playing in the NFL again, even if he is reinstated.

Yeah if this doesn't warrant a lifetime ban I don't know what does. This guy is just silly stupid.

Weed tends to make the problems of people with SAD even worse, in my experience.

Funny thing is...NFL live did a segment on him a week or so ago....talking about how he hadnt smoked in a long time....how he's been spending time with the dhali lama.....

Must have all been just a wild trip in his mind.

And hire a driver, of course.

Don't forget the designated passenger in some states.

Approximately 60-70% of NFL players blaze on a regular basis, smoking pot is not the issue, flunking the test is.

"Falling off the wagon is part of rehab,"

Oh.... well then I guess Ricky's rehab is right where it should be. He's doing his part - why would the NFL punish him for part of his rehab? You'd think they'd support his rehab!
