Cowboys quarterback coach Wade Wilson has been suspended for the team's first five games and fined $100,000 for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.
Wilson admitted purchasing and using the undisclosed product. He said he used the product to help with his quality of life due to complications from diabetes. Wilson said he used it for personal use only and did not distribute. He also said the NFL holds coaches to a higher standard and that's likely why his punishment was so stiff.
``I can't say that I regret trying to improve my health,'' Wilson said. ``I will apologize for any embarassment to the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL and most especially to my family.''
More to come.
