NFLPA may vote Friday on new drug policy

USA Today - [Full Article]

The NFL Players Association said its 32 player representatives could vote on a new drug policy Friday, union spokesman George Atallah said via Twitter Thursday evening.

"NFLPA Player Representatives have been asked to set aside time tomorrow to review and potentially vote on new drug policies," Atallah wrote.

The NFL and the union have been engaged in negotiations on a revised drug policy all week, and an agreement by Friday could overturn or reduce the current suspensions of several players, including Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, serving a four-game suspension for a positive test for a banned amphetamine, and Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon, suspended for the entire season because of multiple substance abuse violations.
