A quick update on who'll be taking league-mandated vacations…

Jaguars DT Marcus Stroud faces a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's steroid policy: "Stroud, 29, underwent offseason microfracture surgery on his chronically problematic right ankle, and it is believed he may have taken supplements to speed his recovery."  If his B sample also tests positive, it will cost him about $330,000 in lost wages.

Padres CF and soon-to-be free agent Mike Cameron will be suspended the first 25 games of next season after his second positive test for a banned stimulant.  I'm no sports agent, but I'd wager this probably isn't the guarantor of the multi-year deal Cameron is seeking.  In an unexpected twist, Cameron blamed a tainted supplement he took.  Damn those supplements!

So… yeah.  A behemoth lineman took steroids, and a speedy outfielder was on uppers.  I'm positively shaken to the core with this news.  What a dark day for sports, et cetera.
