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.”
