Riders’ Chris Jones and Bruce Campbell release statements after positive drug test

Riders offensive lineman Bruce Campbell has been suspended two games for violating the CFL/CFLPA drug policy.

The positive sample was collected during a random in-competition test last November.

The team issued statements after the CFL announced the findings.

Statement from Bruce Campbell:

First, I would like to apologize to the Saskatchewan Roughriders organization and my teammates for putting them in this position. I’d also like to apologize to Rider fans and fans across the league. I take full responsibility for my actions and ensure you it will not happen again. 

I accept the Canadian Football League decision and will not be appealing the two-game suspension.

Statement from Riders General Manager and Head Coach Chris Jones:

As an organization, we fully support the CFL and CFLPA policy to prevent the use of performance enhancing drugs. We are disappointed to learn that a member of our team has committed a violation. We have spoken with Bruce and he has taken ownership of his decision and realizes the impact of this violation.
