Schiano: Eric Wright Suspended For Next Four Games

In his weekly press conference, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said that Eric Wright would be suspended for the next four games.

Wright, was signed as a free agent in the off-season and slated to be a starter at cornerback for the team this season. In October, it was announced that Wright had tested positive for using the performance enhancing drug Adderall.

Eric Wright was the second player on the team this season to test positive for the banned substance. Former Buc Aqib Talib served a similar suspension and then was subsequently traded to New England. Unlike Talib, Wright appealed his suspension, but the appeal has since failed.

Ranked last in defending the pass, the Bucs’ beaten, battered and underwhelming defensive secondary will only struggle further in the next four games.
