Stanley Wilson lost another round in a long fight against drug abuse when the National Football League suspended the Cincinnati Bengals fullback just hours before the start of Super Bowl XXIII Sunday.
The NFL confirmed that the violation stemmed from an incident Saturday night, after Wilson missed a team meeting, but provided few details of the suspension, issuing only a two-sentence release stating that Wilson would "be ineligible to play in Super Bowl XXIII due to violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy."But after the game, Cincinnati Coach Sam Wyche said the drug involved was cocaine.
"Stanley Wilson didn't screw up," Wyche said. "The cocaine overtook him, and I don't know but that our country is going to hell in a handbasket and we don't know it. This is a symptom of it."
