Tyler Sash, the second-year safety who was suspended four regular season games by the league for violating the performance-enhancing substance abuse policy, claimed that he obtained a legal prescription for Adderall but didn't alert the league. Giants coach Tom Coughlin sympathizes with his situation.
“I feel very badly about that, for the player,” Coughlin said. “I mean this kid really had no intention of doing anything that is illegal. I know what the definition of the rule is, and I understand all about that. Sometimes you think maybe common sense needs to be involved in this.
The kid is a heart-and-soul football player now. He takes everything he has and puts it into the game. He loves to play. We used him in a very, very important role last year as a rookie. Fullback on the punt team, for example. There’s no issue with this young man. He doesn’t need any watchdog over him.”
Coughlin said the Giants will work out several players to see who could replace Sash as the fullback on the punt team.
