    Default Report: Ricky Williams could still smoke Larry Bird under the table, ESPN

    Docs recommend delay of Williams' NFL reinstatement
    By Chris Mortensen
    ESPN.com






    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 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.

    Ricky Williams blazing it up again. Some guys just never change.

    Just when I begin to feel bad for him thinking that it's 'only weed'..I remember that he has a chance at millions of dollars by just not smoking. I don't know how some of these guys are so freaking boneheaded.

    Edit: @ thread title.

    Wow, hundreds of comments after that article on espn, with some pretty funny stuff. Thanks for the link.
    I wonder if Ricky is a better player when high. It may be a performance enhancing drug for the guy if it helps him relax and/or focus on the game.

    Yea. Another mistake by Williams. This guy's career has been a downfall since the first time he was caught 'smokn in the boys room'.
