San Francisco 49ers long snapper Kyle Nelson has been suspended for 10 games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, officially ending his 2018 season.
Nelson issued the following statement, via the 49ers official website:
“I have been made aware by the NFL that I tested positive for a banned substance, and as a result will be suspended. I have been taking the same supplements for my entire time with the 49ers, while undergoing often simultaneous testing by the NFL with no issues. I do not deviate from my nutrition routine, and I would never knowingly take a banned substance. I am currently having the supplements tested, and I hope to uncover the cause of the positive test. When the product is identified I fully intend to seek legal action against the manufacturer to protect against this happening to other players in the future.”

Fells, 32, was cut by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month after the team failed to find a trade.
Fells, who inked a three-year, $12 million deal with the Browns last year, managed only 11 receptions in his only season in Cleveland.
